    the question shouldn't be "why would you go to Australia?" but rather "why would you want travel anywhere else other than Australia?….maybe apart from New Zealand 😁"

    Seriously though, it's not as dangerous a place as people make out, it's just that a lot of it is very minimally populated (large regions where it's unsustainable to have cities of people) but as a result those parts are particularly jam packed full of spectacular natural vistas. I'm lucky to have a reserve on my side doorstep (that ironically 'snakes' under 2 intersecting freeways) and while I'm sure there are snakes there I haven't yet seen any and as long as I walk carefully (by making a bit of noise while walking in any long grass) I may not actually see any there for years to come. Most snakes don't tend to inhabit the water, and those that do are in tropical climates (in places such Darwin or in the state of Queensland). I have seen Kangaroos there, albeit only on a few occassions and only 2 pairs of them.

    Also, the vast majority of spiders in Australia aren't really dangerous to humans (including most of the large ones). And for anyone who hasn't actually seen an Australian possum in Australia I'm happy to say that they look incredibly different from their American relatives (particularly Australian ringtail possums, that making light twittering voice and who look adorable, and even the brushtail possums (that at times exchange threatening sounding noises towards each other) are amazing looking and acting creatures). I do however completely understand why many New Zealanders don't like them, but that's because they were an introduced species to New Zealand and as such along with rats and stoats have sadly had as big an impact on New Zealand's native fauna and general local ecosystem in general as the impact that rats, cats, feral foxes and cane toads have had on Australia's native ecosystem (albeit via varying ways).

    I spent my early years growing up in the bush and I never once got bitten by a spider or in fact stung by anything, but within a month of moving down to the suburbs I got stung by a bee and then by a wasp (both being species that were introduced to Australia and are not native).

    Something that Australia has which relatively few other countries have is a large variety of natural wonders, both on land and in the water, and also a range of very different climates in different parts of the country.
    But as amazing as the natural landscape is the amount of deforestation and increased suburban sprawl I the major cities over the past 5 decades has been immense, and only become faster with the turn of the 21st century. Our reefs are quickly changing (most of which is irrevocable) and most people (including most farmers) agree that more needs to be done to decrease the amount of chemical 'run-off' that exists in some major river systems (including some that feed out onto sections of the Great Barrier Reef) and to minimise currently rising sea temperatures.

    Such places will forever remain amazing, but we do need to do what we can to ensure that they and countless other natural environments the world over are protected by us as much as is possible.

    Last year I planned to stay in Brisbane for 6-7 months. I had an amazing au pair family. But then covid came. And I left Brisbane and Australia. After just 5 weeks. I fell so deep in love with this city and the people there. So whenever my heart is heavy and aches I come to such videos. To "feel" Brisbane again. Thank you for that video! Hope to be able to see Brisbane with my own eyes again. Someday…

    Ahh I love this city. Brisbane has been an obsession of mine ever since Charlene left neighbours and headed to Brissy never to be seen again! In my 5 year old brain I imagined this magical place on the other side of the world to me (I’m from England) and dreamed of being there some day. I’m 36 and now live in NSW Australia and I’m so pleased I made it to Brisbane this year for the first time. It was everything I dreamed of and now I’m desperate to move there with my family! It’s literally become my main goal in life to move there 😂
