Australia isn’t a place that many people visit for one fairly obvious reason. Depending on where you live, it might well be on the other side of the world. That’s probably why it’s so popular with teenagers heading off on their gap year. Short of taking a rocket ship to the moon, it’s about as far away as you can get from your parents. However, despite the migraine inducing journey there, there are plenty of reasons why you should visit Australia and take a trip down under.
