Australia has everything you need to enjoy adventure tours and activities on your vacation. Travel gold --1

Australia is the land of sun, sands, surf - and prawns! Australians adore ocean food. Though a shrimp is just that to those in other countries, to us it is prawn. Furthermore, a lobster also has an identity problem. It is a crayfish to us.

Australia has all the comforts as well as interesting places to see, from major cities, restaurants, entertainment venues and casinos to the great outback where the Australian culture truly lies. Most Australians are living in coastal regions in cities, though we look to the bush for the our heritage: the horsemen of the Blue Mountains wrote about by Paterson in his poems, the Dog on the Tuckerbox on the road to Gundagai, diggers, stockmen, sheepshearers, railway builders, graziers. --4

Australia Zoo was established by The Crocodile Hunter's father. It is an fascinating venue. Crocodiles and native animals are the main draw cards. Steve Irwin's family has introduced animalia from other parts of the world. Several elephants are now spending their "retirement" at the Zoo. The zoo also has camels on show. The original dromedaries were brought to Australia by Afghanis over a century ago. Terri and Bindi Irwin continue to put on entertainment. Activities victoria 7--
Give an Ocker a piece of wire and pair of pliers and, it is said, he will invent something. Though it is contentious that barbed wire was actually developed by Australia, it does indicate the spirit of a people who had to cope in a new location with materials at hand.

Animals are in the wild, but some have been domesticated, others actually live with us. They all give us comfort and many laughs. They provide us with something to laugh about. You don't have to be an expert to snap them. Take pictures of creatures on a camera or even on your smart phone. Just watch and wait for the that moment when they seem to be like humans and do comical things. They of course are not aware of the humorous situation. Entertainment teys --9

Strine is alive and well in modern Ozland. An example of this is "g'day" an abbreviation of "good day". Another Aus greeting is "how ya goin', mate?" It is rolled into one word: "owyagownmyt?" A quick thing is "flat out like a lizard drinking." culture --12
