There more your neighbours in California than anything else. One the places I would like to visit the most Hawaii

have been 4 times...go to Napili Bay and Paia in Maui if you visit - beautiful and less touristy (as much as Hawaii can be less touristy)

sure - I have also heard that Kauai is an amazing place to visit, more peaceful and utterly beautiful. Speaking of your neck of the woods, my father-in-law visited New Zealand and the pics he brought back showed a completely spectacular place. Have you been there? Where else other than the usual suspects like Sydney are good places to visit down under?

I haven't been anywhere outside of the southwest part of Western Australia (Western Australia is the size of about 1/4 of the U.S. and Aust). I have heard that New Zealand is beautiful with nice mountains and forests. One of the most popular places to visit in Australia is the Snowy Mountains, near Sydney, they are famous for skiing

Plenty of great places to see in Aus :mrgreen:

If you want to see the outback then NT and Queensland are the go, as well as parts of South Australia and Western Australia. Alot to choose from I know. If you like rain forests, then North Queensland is for you. New South Wales and Victoria have a lot in the way of alpine forests, skiing and what not, although Tasmania probably has the best forests and trails. A pity that everything closes early in Tassy....really early :shock:

If you like museums and music and nightlife, you probably want either Melbourne or Sydney...in that order.

Wine fan? The Adelaide hills are for you.

Basically Australia has something for everyone. I've never been to New Zealand either but my parents have and they like most other people loved it. Its great for anyone that wants a relaxing holiday and even better for someone that wants an exciting one....or so I've been told. The natural beauty of the place also can't be beaten from what I've been told.

Anyways, theres my 2 cents.

In that order?. What's so great about Melbourne? (It's not an attack against the city. I'm asking honestly. It's just that Sydney seems like the jewel of the crown from here).

And what's up with Perth?. Migya, time to step up for your town...

heres your answer....

Sydney the jewel in the crown?? Sacrilege!! :mrgreen: When it comes to Music and arts Melbourne is the place to be....not Sydney. Melbourne is also the place to be if you want sports, but maybe I'm biased.

As for Perth....thats like a whole other country. :mrgreen:

Very laid back though from what I hear, great beaches, nice women (ask migya) terrible piss (alcohol) and also has some good local rock from what I hear as well. My missus reckons the Fremantle Markets are sh*t hot as well.

Interesting. Australia and Canada cover most of the top ten... while the first spanish city is Barcelona at 44. Friggin' great. Not that it surprises me, tho.

What I like about where I live is that it is laid back and not stress filled! Perth has some action places but depends on what you like. The beaches are great and yes, the women are good as well

Well, I guess it all depends on what you mean by liveable. I grew up in vancouver and there is no doubt it is a beautiful and progressive semi-big city ( about 2 mill in greater). But it closes really early and you have to be able to deal with rain...a lot of rain....a SHITLOAD of rain! Most exciting city I have ever lived in is NYC, with amazing things open very late, including great restaurants and the best jazz in the world. On the other hand not a ot of physical beauty and expensive as hell. The Bay seems like the best compromise between the sheer beauty of Vancouver and the urban excitement of NYC, and the weather easily has them both beat.

Hey, I've got that same weather (or even worse)

That's a typical winter around here. If it's not snowing, it's probably raining. In any case, it's gonna be freezing cold.

Oh, well. At least everything it's open 'til real late...

Most of the country has that sunny and warm weather you're talking about... I just happen to live in the north. The snow and cold weather lasts only for a couple of months, tho, so it's not a big deal. But it certainly rains a lot all year round.
