What is the biggest challenge? Pretty sure for a Canadian kid, the answer is: The Heat. 42C is something I never need to experience again... However, the rest of the country is spectacular. From the verdant rainforests of Queensland to the incomparable Great Barrier Reef, to the windswept shores of the Great Ocean Road, Australia is a diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to its immense size and relatively small population, it is still easily possible to have a crystal clear swimming hole all to yourself in Josephine Falls, pluck fresh mangoes in an empty field while koalas look down on you from the gum tree next door, or share a glass of Bartagunya port with your lover on a deserted beach as the sun sets.
