The Great Southern Land, Straya, Oz, Down Under…Australia. The country is massive – and we’ve been fortunate to have seen quite a bit (but not even close to all of it!). Our travels have taken us to the major cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Hobart and Perth – as well as to the Gold Coast and the city of Coollangata.
We’ve watched sunset from the steps of the Opera House in Sydney, walked the hidden laneways to chic cafes in Melbourne, cruised the river in Brisbane, searched for Nemo on the Great Barrier Reef while in Cairns, admired surfers riding the waves on the Gold Coast and explored the streets of the Perth Central Business District. Australia is a country that we keep returning to – not only are there ample opportunities for us as traveling housesitters, but also for all the places we have yet to discover.
