As promised, here is my second blog in the series of our focus on ‘Why Australia’. I have tried to put assortment of pictures from different parts of Australia. It’s soon going to be two years of living in Australia for me on permanent residency. I love to travel but with family and job commitments in tandem, it is a slightly difficult task. Still, I have managed to see some beautiful parts of Australia. These include Sydney, Newcastle, Woolongong, Canberra, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Melbourne, Tasmania, and of course Gold Coast! So, let’s dive in!!
They say a picture paints a thousand words, so I will let the pictures do the major portion of talking in this blog, so that you can soak in the beauty of Australia.
Opera House – Vivid Sydney (World’s largest festival of light, music and ideas)

Yeh Dil Maange More? Here..
Great Barrier Reef
Heart Shaped Reef
Must see places? All of Australia! Each corner is full of natural beauty – from pristine beaches to beautiful rain forests. You name it and Australia has got it! Oh, that reminds me. Do you know Australia has got penguins as well? Don’t believe me? I too didn’t initially, but…
Now you do? They are found south of Melbourne and in the Western Australia too!!
I am personally looking forward to go see a living structure which is 25 million years old and which is the only living structure which can be seen from the space!! Do you know what I am talking about? Yes, you do, if you read my first blog – the Great Barrier Reef. It is under tremendous attack due to environmental factors, therefore, I would like to see this beauty at the earliest.
Other places on my list include Adelaide (Barossa Valley wineries) on the south, Darwin and Uluru on the north, Perth in the west. All the major cities (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) of Australia are located on the east coast of Australia except for Perth which is on the west coast. Remember growing up when we used to be happy when the cricket games were held at Perth? Because the time difference between Indian Standard Time (IST) and Perth is minimal and we could enjoy the games without waking up early unlike the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane games!!
So, there you go! If you are still thirsty for more, do let me know and I will post some more pictures. Please feel free to write what you thought of these pictures and topics which interest you.
Please do not forget to like and share my posts on the Facebook!! And watch for this space for plenty more. This journey has just started…After all, we work for YOUR bright future!
