G’day mate! Welcome to the land Down Under, where the sun shines bright, The animals can be both terrifying and adorable, and the people are as friendly as can be! Yep, you guessed it right, we’re talking about none other than iconic Australia, the wild and rugged country on the other side of the world.
In January 2014 I moved from a small town in Ontario Canada to Melbourne Australia. Here are a few of my favourite photos from Australia that I was lucky enough to take on my travels!

A Few of My Favourite Photos From Australia
From the iconic Sydney Opera House and the magnificent Great Barrier Reef to the vast Outback and cuddly koalas, Australia has got it all. With its laid-back vibe, stunning landscapes, and diverse wildlife, Australia is a dream destination for adventure seekers and nature lovers alike.
With something for everyone – seriously. In Australia not only can you see kangaroos and other wildlife, you can try your hand at surfing, dine in one of Sydney’s fine dining restaurants, get over-caffeinated at one of Melbourne’s laneway cafes, melt your heart by visiting the Quokka’s of Rottnest Island in Perth, experience the sunrise at Uluru, get up close to a crocodile at Darwin’s Crocosaurus Cove, look under the sea while snorkelling The Great Barrier Reef, Australia is a country that has it all, and more!
Why Did I Move To Australia?
I always knew that I wanted to work abroad, and after considering various avenues decided that becoming an au pair made the most sense for me. After deciding on an au pair company and location, I chose Australia. I moved to Melbourne because that is where my chosen host family lived, and it was the perfect choice.
I had originally hoped to move to Brisbane because I wanted easy access to East Coast travel. In Brisbane, it’s so easy to rent a car and drive the East Coast. I love how typical Aussie Brisbane is and the sun, but the arts, laneway, and café culture of Melbourne very much suited me.
Where Did I Go In Australia?
I was lucky in that I immediately joined Facebook groups for expats and au pairs and quickly made friends. I went on a few organized tours; to the Great Ocean Road, The Great Barrier Reef where I spent a week in Cairns, and the Daintree Rainforest. And I also tagged along with my host family to Sydney, where I explored on my own for 3 days, and then went to Byron Bay, Brisbane, and the Australia Zoo with a friend.
