I'm a proud Aussie born and bred. You barely touched the surface but that's okay. The almost untouched wild country in western Tasmania, Cradle Mountain National Park. The mighty Daintree Rain Forest in North Queensland, the fascinating country in northern South Australia around Coober Pedy where opal is mined and almost everyone lives underground. Even the churches are underground. The unbelievable carpet of wildflowers, found only in Australia that carpets the desert in spring in Western Australia. The snowfields in NSW and Victoria with more skiable snow than Switzerland. But my favourite place is the north coast of NSW. Stunning countryside, lush and green and beautiful, clean, uncrowded beaches. You must visit Newcastle, an hour's drive north of Sydney. The dining and accommodation are 5 star, the beaches have just been judged some of the best in Australia and a short drive west will take you to the Hunter Valley vineyards, the oldest in Australia, dating from 1834 and home to wines which are winning awards worldwide. Just come. You won't regret it!

Barbara S Hayford, you better believe it! We Aussies are some of the world's most friendly, easygoing people.

My Mum is from Adelaide and made it to 94. I hope to do the same. I'm very proud of being half-Aussie (Father's "American" family from Poland) and announcing it to anyone who will listen and on many shirts, etc.. My wish and "goal" is to get to beautiful Adelaide and other areas before I do hit that 94 number. And I always found it "interesting" that my Mum lived in the U.S. (mostly) and never completely lost her accent. I do miss it. G'day mates.....

You are absolutely right. We spent a year in Brisbane with weekend trips and barely touched on all the wonderful places. The only thing better we’re the people who were fabulous.Joy Holbrook,

Another wonder of Australia that a lot of people don't know about is Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. When I was there in 2019 I snorkelled with four whale sharks (one of them missed me by a metre), two other species of shark, manta rays, turtles and myriad colourful reef fish, as well as spotting humpback whales and minke whales. UNESCO World Heritage listed, yet somehow hardly anyone's heard of the place.

Oz is so diverse and beautiful. Yes we have some dangerous critters, but mostly if they are left alone they will leave you alone 😁🙃 We love this country 👍🏼🇦🇺
