Hobart, Perth, Sidney, Brisbane, Adellea (sp?). Unfortunately in the military so I didnt get as much time as I would have liked, to see the country side, city and enjoy all the other things the Land Down Under has to offer. Did meet some awesome people, eat some great food and have a lot of fun though. Just not enough!

I remember when stupidity used to hurt...there was a lot less of it back then!

Adelaide! :)

I've been to all those cities - but I live in Melbourne, which is the best city of them all (I admit to being biased!). Every city has its good points, though. Even Hobart. ;)

Hopefully you can come back one day just for fun, LFI.

Thank you, OFL. I love it here, what a great community - and the information is brilliant for us newbie bettakeepers.

It's even got Daughter enthusiastic - she loves the picture threads here and has gone from rolling her eyes at Mum's new hobby to deciding that when she is ready for her own betta she wants a turquoise HM, or possibly a plakat. As long as it's turquoise, lol.

It's amazing how much joy one little fish can bring to a household. :)

I've had a few friends over from the US, DQ, and they all absolutely fell in love with the place (and survived the experience, lol).

Every state has its own special thing that makes it cool to visit (except maybe for Canberra >>) but Alice Springs in the center and Kakadu forest in the far north are pretty darned spectacular. Oh, and the Barrier Reef is really worth a visit, ofc.

I just love this country. I feel really lucky to live here.

Yoiks - I should have said 'ACT' (Australian Capital Territory) rather than 'Canberra', which is the capital city of that state (or 'territory', w/e, lol).
