The continent that has always felt so far away is bursting with incredible natural wonders. Australia is a comforting mix of home comforts and kangaroos, gorgeous beaches, amazing weather and jaw dropping sunsets… so basically the complete opposite of home. It was during a beautiful Queensland promenade walk that I heard a local resident remark to her friend, “We’re so lucky to live here…” and I couldn’t help but agree. It might be far away, but this region is well worth the effort.
At a time when stress levels were incredibly high for me, Australia soothed me in a way I don’t think any other place could have done. Sydney and Brisbane are youthful, vibrant cities whilst never feeling too crowded. And, of course, you don’t need me to tell you that Australia’s beaches and natural beauty are second to none.
