Australia has excellent academic resources
Australian universities are world-class, consistently ranking amongst the very best global institutions.
Australia places strict limits on luggage at domestic and international airports, so you’ll want to make sure you under-pack.
Australia will seem very similar to much of the U.S. – except when it isn’t
Australian and American cultures are remarkably alike in a variety of ways. Both have frontier origins and have their own versions of the Wild West (the U.S. has ranchers and cowboys; Australia has stockmen and drovers), both have thriving country music scenes and both have similar attitudes toward drinking alcohol.
Australian slang isn’t what you think it is
You probably won’t find an Australian using the term “barbie” for barbecue, or “Sheila” for a woman (unless they’re joking), but there is a network of elaborate Australian slang that may make understanding the locals slightly tricky.
