Well everyone or ost knows my biggest shock was the price of things lol, im getting over this now.
The spiders are huge here and so black and thick legged arggggg
The BBQ areas the shires actually provides gas wonderful
How green everything is here and that smell of cut grass reminds me of UK
The greenie birds ( as I call them, there parrots) they come in the garden and feed, that was amazing to see for me as I usually see them in cages back home.
The most point that impressed me is how the Australians obey the rules out here, watering the gardens certain days of the week, driving within the speed limit, and has anyone noticed just how clean the streets are now that impressed me.
You see guys there are things I love about this wonderful country lol.

Louise, I so agree with you on the rules! It's crazy how you can be driving on a highway, and slow down to a near stop when you come to a town. That would never happen here! And the parrots coming to the backyards (and cockatoos) really amazed me!

I hear Oz uses hidden cameras, etc. to enforce speed limit and are much more strict about it... maybe that's why.
