Australia is home to people of all cultures, languages and religions. So you never have to go far to experience all the different foods, faces and festivals our wonderful country has to offer.
You will also get to explore the fascinating customs, stories and 65,000-year history of Australia’s Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people – who share a deep spiritual connection with the land.
Considered one of the safest countries in the world, Australia is a peaceful, stable society.
With our clean environments, national freedom and access to high-quality healthcare, it’s no wonder Australia is the number one choice for international students far and wide.
Australia is home to some of the most breathtaking sights on earth – including two of the world’s seven natural wonders.
Want to swim among colourful coral and magical sea life in the Great Barrier Reef? Or perhaps you prefer to explore indigenous paintings at Uluṟu and Kata Tjuṯa, two spectacular red rocks that are millions of years old.
Australia also has many other beautiful attractions to enjoy. Does the Sydney Opera House, the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles sound familiar?
With warm summer months and mild winters, Australia’s weather is hard to beat. We enjoy four seasons across most of the country, and a wet and dry season in the tropical north.
If you dream of sunny days at the beach and warm starry nights, September to February will be your favourite time of year. Or, if you prefer weekend getaways in the snow, June to August is the time for you.
Welcoming and friendly every day of the year, Australians will make your time in this country a pleasant one. You will always have someone who is happy to assist whenever you need a helping hand.
Our people are also laid-back and open-minded, which makes settling in with the locals enjoyable and easy.
With 40 universities across the nation and six ranking in the world’s top 100, Australia offers plenty of choice in higher education.
Better yet, there are countless career pathways to pursue after your studies – and endless support to help you along the way.
More than 80% of Australia’s animals and plants cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
As well as the friendly koala, Australian is home to the dingo, wombat, Tasmanian Devil and the country’s most iconic furry friend… the kangaroo!
Australia’s plant life is also fascinating. So look out for our beautiful wattle trees, banksias, waratahs and eucalyptus trees – with koalas munching on their leaves.
‘Come on Aussie, Come on!’ Have you heard that chant before? If not, it’s time to learn it!
Whether it’s cricket, rugby, Australian football (AFL) or swimming, Australians are possibly the most vocal and enthusiastic sports watchers in the world.
However, we also enjoy and play sports from other parts of the world – including soccer, basketball, tennis and badminton. So why not cheer on or join a local team?
