    I love Australia it’s such a great country, really enjoyed my time out there I really need to go back someday in the not too distant future. Great list and the fact your former Prime Minister holds a record for downing pints is truly sensational, another reason why Australia is great! Awesome post lots of fun facts.

    Did you hear that Adelaide just made the top 10 cities for 2014 on Lonely Planet!!!

  11. Paulo Ramos

    You forgot to mention about Melbourne (the most liveable city for 3 years in a row) !!

  12. Travelling King

    Sorry Paulo!
    We can agree to disagree (not a huge fan of Melbourne! – I think we will need to go back to Melbourne and find what everyone loves abotu it! )
