Australia is mostly populated around the coastline and so every major city has its own port. I bet that makes you think ” Well, there isn’t any shortage of beaches then!”, and you would be right! Sydney is the capital of the country and wow what a city that is! Actually all the Australian cities are beautiful, but even more so with its great climate and welcoming spirit.

Now it’s time for a little history lesson of Australia. Bear with me :). Well, have you ever heard about the Aboriginal settlers? They arrived to the country some 40.000 years ago. Pretty amazing right? Later in 1770 the first Europeans started to explore Australia and it was then proclaimed as a British territory. It was only then discovered, that it had vast amounts of natural resources and first factories were soon built.

It’s not easy to “discover” Australia, because you have to decide what do you want to see first. If you would like to check out the famous Australian hopping animals, huh, what are they again? Oh, right! Kangaroos! Well if you would like to see some then it shouldn’t be a problem because it has many national wildlife reserves. The biggest one is Scotia Sanctuary which is as big as France. Animals are cool, right? Well, surfing is too!
