Hi everybody
I am doing a backpacking assignment for tourism (highschool... yay)

Cheers

easy! The beautiful men with their sexy accents!!!
And maybe for the kangeroos, the beaches, learning to surf, dive the great barrier reef, etc. Ok I could literally go on for hours on why i want to come to Oz. There are millions of amazing reasons to visit Australia. I cant wait to make it there. I get excited whenever someone brings up Australia. You should have no problem with this assignment. Just think of why YOU love Aus., and it'll probably be the same reasons wht others want to come visit.

Absolutely wrong, Teri. It's all about the hot women and their accents

My main reason to go was for a buddy's wedding, but other motivating factors:

* Great weather
* Great surf
* Diving the reef
* Nature & wildlife
* Beaches
* Meat pies & Tim Tams

Not been yet, but will be there in November. My reasons for wanting to go are lovely weather (I hope!), maybe learning to surf, amazing beaches, getting a taste of the big cities, but also being able to use the good connections to smaller towns.

Theres SO many!! My reasons are:

Weather
Beaches
Learning to Surf
The talent
Great Barrier Reef
The history
The wildlife
The bush
The nightlife
To see my Aussie friends
Just to see the contrast between living in England and Oz life
