  1. Winter’s may get nippy,
    But let that not be a pity.
    Because you can’t beat the magical glow found in Melbourne city.

  2. Standing aloft Sydney Harbour Bridge for a heightened experience like no other

  3. Deception Bay catchment park – there’s many colourful characters whether human or animal life, hundred’s or birds, bats flying over, koala, dogs being walked by there mates & the best thing there is often park functions like Indigenous day’s or bongo drummers, just so serene & inviting to any age, race or sex

  4. My favourite place is the park in our town. Shady trees, smooth lake, fishing, wonderful equipment for kids, paths to explore <3

    Twitter name is Wickylicious 🙂


  6. I love perth; I moved to WA 13 years ago and have never looked back. We have a big city with a coutry feel and so much close by such as beautiful beaches, vineyards, hills and plenty of oportunities for myself and family to live and play in the best spot on Australia.

  7. i love noosa .it has everything the beach, the buetiful river,the national park and my favorite place ,the noosa north shore , where you can drive on the beach fish and camp

  8. My home town in remote-ish north east Tasmania. Calmingly quiet and peaceful, refreshingly lush and green, astonishingly full of delightful flora and fauna, fresh air and vistas to amaze.

  9. The Kimberley’s Mitchell Plateau with its magnificant gorges, water falls, rivers and scenery, and the barramundi fishing is absolutely amazing.

  10. Is this competition open to USians? Thanks!

  11. Gold Coast. So much to see and do and the theme Parks gives hours of fun for all and the clean beaches and the shopping. All at your finger tips.

  12. The icy wind stings your nose in Blackheath, and snowflakes dance in the crisp, night sky as you sink your teeth into a warm slice of local pizza, dripping with cheese and scrumptious ham bursting from it’s crusty guts. You inhale the soft, smoky air as wood-fire smoke trickles out of chimneys.
    Only a hour’s drive from the thick stream of lights and life in Sydney, you truly feel a sensation of satisfaction, frost crunching against your feet, clean air filling your lungs. Here, you have it all.
