a few reasons to love australia

(if you are me, anyway...)

Australia arguably has the most diverse and fascinating wildlife in the world.

Australia also boasts a rich and fascinating geological history:

Australia's Lost Kingdoms

The Aborigines of Australia hold claim to having "the longest continuous cultural history in the world, with origins dating back to the last Ice Age".

Check out the Aboriginal Australia Art Culture and Didgeridoo.

Two of the 7 natural wonders of the world are The Great Barrier Reef and Uluru aka Ayers Rock.

Some beautiful images of The Great Barrier Reef courtesy of National can be be found here.

One of the most beautiful gems in the world is found in abundance in Australia; some opal linkies:

Former University of New Mexico Lobo (YAY Lobos!!!) and NBA Basketball Star (Timberwolves, Bulls, Suns) Luc Longley hails from and now lives once again in beautiful Perth, Australia.

Australia is the home of some really great rock/pop musicians:

AC/DC, INXS, Jet, Nick Cave, Silverchair, and The Vines to name a few.

And you get a whole new night-sky perspective from the Southern Hemisphere
