Questions about Australian Facts?

Or Stories about Life in Australia?

We are sharing our own Australian facts, our experience about starting afresh in Sydney and are trying to collate some tips about how it feels to live here. But this is just us.

There are so many other experiences out there. Life is fun because people are different and have their own stories.

Do you have an interesting story about Sydney and its attractions or your travels Down Under? Do Tell!

We would love to hear about your best experiences, your best tips or questions on travelling, relocating, moving your funds or working in Australia.

If you like Australia as much as we do, if you like the cities, the bush or the beaches or other attractions such as, for example, Taronga Zoo or the Vivid Sydney Festival please share your stories with us! And your photos too.

Or ask a question if you want to know more. We'll try our best to answer and if we don't know, there may be other readers of this site that do.
