I’m pretty conflicted about Australia and I read something from Stephanie at 20something travel that summed it up perfectly, she said she really loved the country but felt a bit cheated as a tourist there. The standard of living in Australia is ridiculously high, we met one young British couple in Sydney who were earning double the salary that they had in the UK for doing exactly the same job. As a result, things cost more and I mean a lot more. It’s tough for tourists from pretty much any other country as the Australian Dollar is so strong and especially for us as the Pound isn’t doing well against anything! I genuinely don’t know how some of the young backpackers we saw could afford to do any of the activities on offer.
