Sydney Opera House, barbies on the beach, amber nectar - all these things are to Australia what Britain is to roast beef. But there is more to Australia than just the clichés of going walkabout or calling everyone ‘mate’. Australia has hidden depths and that is not just talking about the Great Barrier Reef!
Australia definitely has two sides to it as well. The central and western areas of Australia are arid and flat with sparse populations, while the coastal parts of Australia are widely populated and thriving. These two differing outlooks are enticing to travellers and so people flock to Australia in their millions.
