Check out these articles from the Globetrooper Team in this country:

Australia is the only country that has a whole continent to itself. World famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces, its beaches, deserts, "the bush", and "the Outback", Australia is actually one of the world's most highly urbanised countries. It is also well known for the cosmopolitan attractions of its large cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Having lived in Australia for the majority of our lives, you would expect that we'd know a lot about it. The opposite is true, I doubt most Australians have seen as much of Australia as most foreigners who come here. I think because it is an island, far away from everywhere else, the cost of travelling overseas is about the same as travelling from the south to the north, or the east to the west. 

Although we haven't travelled extensively through Australia, we definitely know the culture inside out. And having lived in Sydney before taking off on our round-the-world travels, gave us a lot of insight into the best Things To Do in this cosmopolitan beach city. Melbourne hotels, boutique shopping and trendy bars draw many to the south for an urban contrast to Sydney city life.
