The planet’s sixth- largest country has a lot to offer! Undoubtedly, it is a fantastic country to either live or visit!
Australians probably enjoy one of the most envious lifestyles, and an Australian experience can flood you with many emotions! So, what’s so special about Australia?
- Economy and Government
Australia is one of the strongest performing economies with a mixed market in the world with a GDP of about US$1.525 trillion and has a stable democracy that is consistently ranked amongst the top. The country ranks number 2 in Human Development Index. It is armed with a skilled workforce and has low rates of unemployment. Credit goes to the ‘work-life balance’ emphasized by the Aussies!
- Standard of education
Australia boasts of being home to some of the world’s top most universities. The Australian education system there is based on practical training. The students get to inculcate job ready skills from the university and institutes as a result of compulsory industrial training in their curriculum. There are more than 1200 institutions offering near to about 22,000 courses. Australia has an impressive literacy rate with secondary school enrolment being highest, and ranking as the 3rd most popular destination to study amongst international students.
The crime rates in Australia are very low compared to the major developed countries. The society is very matured and open-minded. It might also be because there is an emphasis on lifestyle stability with healthcare, education and such basic facilities available to everyone very easily. There is a sense of family amongst the people residing there which is evident from the way they celebrate their festivals and weekend gatherings. Every year Australia opens doors for many refugees who have either become homeless or escaping war broken countries.
Australia has a rich ancient culture and immense respect for every culture. It can be seen on the Harmony Day celebration on 21 March each year when people from all walks of life come together. You will meet 1 out of every 5 ‘Aussies’ who are not born in the country. It never fails to give you a warm and homely feeling!
Being a huge continent, Australia experiences several seasons from winter to summer to rain, and the magnificent landscape has beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforest and much more to enjoy! Most of southern Australia has cold winters and hot summers. In the Northern region, there is a tropical climate. If you want to play in snow, then you can visit Victoria and New South Wales in the winter.
- Beautiful natural ecosystem
The most prized assets of Australia would be its flora and fauna that has developed into a beautiful ecosystem. The Great Barrier Reef is proof of it! No wonder, as 91 % of Australia is covered in vegetation. While hearing name of Australia, one of the first things that comes to mind are Koalas and Kangaroos, but the country is home to hundreds of exceptional species of birds, reptiles, marine animals and more.
Sport is absolutely loved in Australia and the majority of weekends are reserved for sport. Some of the biggest stadiums in the world can be found in Australia. Games like cricket, football, tennis, badminton, swimming and more are played phenomenally well by many Aussies. Their love towards sports may be the secret to their sporty attitude towards life.
