The island continent experiences seasons in reverse from what North Americans and Europeans are accustomed to at different times of year. This is the draw of the Land Down Under.
Even though the rugged terrain of the Outback constitutes approximately 70% of the country, there are still some wonderful locales within the coastal metropolises that you can enjoy and relax in.
As you explore the resorts of the Land Down Under, be sure to share your experiences with your friends and followers. Blog about the sunsets and the fine dining for the rest of the world to enjoy.
