Australia My Dream Destination

Australia is my dream destination. I am sure we all have a place that we want to visit more than any other place in the world. Since my late teens, Australia has always been that place for me.

When I was in my late teens I began watching Neighbours and Home and Away, 2 Australian soap operas that were in Canada for a short time. I guess after watching them I was hooked on the destination. I began researching my big adventure and have never stopped.

Whether it be swimming or surfing along the seaside, or on a ‘walk about’ through the outback, there are so many different places to visit, coast to coast and in between for an Australian adventure.

There is nothing more inviting then a walk over the Sydney Harbour bridge, with the lights of the city and the glow of the moon over the water, or maybe a visit to the opera house.

Toronto to Australia is probably about 22 hours with a stop somewhere in between, now that’s a long time to be travelling on a plane. How do you make the time pass? Yes, sleeping is an option although I never really seem to sleep when I fly. One day my dream will come true an I will be there.

Travelling on an Australian excursion and wondering where to go? Once you’re there I am sure you will know what to do, if you venture into one of the regions below.  

  • In and around Sydney
  • New South Wales
  • Coastal Queensland
  • Outback Queensland
  • Western Australia
  • Northern Territory
  • South Australia
  • In and Around Melbourne
  • Tasmania

While you’re out strolling the beaches or walking the land watch you may come across kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, birds, reptiles and marine life of many different varieties. Be careful of the spiders and snakes, some of the most dangerous are around.

I guess if you want the true experience you should probably know a few of the commonly used slang words.

  • Knackered = Pooped; Tired; Exhausted
  • layby = Layaway
  • Light globe = Light bulb
  • Lippie = Lipstick
  • Lolly water = Soft drink
  • Loo = Toilet; Restroom
  • Loose cannon = Someone who is behaving out of control
  • Lounge room = Living room
  • Mozzies = {or: mossie} Mosquitoes
  • Nappies = Diapers

Where is your dream destination? Do you have it all planned out? Have you been there already?
