Okay, I know this question has been asked many times, but I'm having difficulty in deciding whether to go to New Zealand or Australia during spring semester in the U.S./fall semester in the south pacific.

I've done a lot of research, but it seems that both places have their negatives and positives. New Zealand has great extreme sports, but it could be a little small (not that I'm not used to being in a small town) and the climate could be cooler. Australia has great outdoor activities, nice beaches, and lots of culture, but the cities I'm looking into (Melbourne and Brisbane) could be overwhelming with huge populations.

Bottom line: After all my research, I am still confused, and just need a little feedback from people who have traveled or even studied abroad to either place.

ANY feedback is greatly appreciated!
