What's your impression of Australians?
My stereotypical Australian was that they love sports and beer and I'm not far off, although beer is a lot more expensive than I first thought.
The majority of Australians are nice but some can be quite outspoken.

I like the night life, Airlie was just a stop along the way but once I got here it's a great place just to chill out and relax by the lagoon and paddle board.
Where are you staying?
Weirdest part of Australia?
The animals and I am fascinated by indigenous culture and how that fits into Australian society.

I'm staying in backpackers' the majority of the trip but I have booked two nights of luxury in a hotel in Brisbane.
Why did you come to Australia?
I guess I came to see the landmarks and the animals. I love the weather and am enjoying the heat but having said that I am sunburnt.
