Oh P London...

-More green - There's actually more green in Aussie. Victoria, Taz, the Tropical parts and most of the coastal strips make up more than western Europe, which is like 5X bigger than NZ...
-Less likely to get killed by a wild animal - True That...
-Less Arrogant - Think they're both the same
-Its not Australia
-Huge mountains cutting the Country in half (I like Mountains) - Ever heard of the Blue mountains?!
-Cheaper cost of living - Wages aren't that great, so disagree.
-Its not Australia
-I like Auckland and How the city is situated - Fair enough, I like Brisbane and how the city is situated...
-It has more of a four season climate on the South Island - So does Victoria, Tasmania and the Blue mountains
-Its not Australia

OK if it where 20 years ago I probs would agree with you on the arrogant thing. But Aus has changed and has become more modernised... I say give it a go and enjoy the fun out there dude!

Not really mountains as such, although still quite beautiful.

The Great Dividing Range is the second longest mountain chain in the world, after the Andes.

Isn't it the Rocky Mountains in the good ole U.S and Canada?

List of mountain ranges - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The problem with Australia's mountain ranges in comparison to Canada and the U.S is they aren't that high or massive..

The U.S has the tallest Mountain in any of the countries in this thread with Mount Mckinley at over 20300ft high

Canada has an almost as tall mountain in Mount Logan at 19800ft but it is also the most massive non volcanic mountain in the world by base circumference - it is freaking MASSIVE...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Logan

Australia's tallest is 7300 ft.. Generally speaking Australia's mountains are wimps compared to the U.S and Canada.

It's not really a problem with the GDR as such. Not that high, but an unbroken chain nonetheless.

I'm just thinking about all those people I've misinformed over the years -the shame.

The weather creates a dampener (despite in Summer when the weather might be good)! My B-Days in Jan, so it will be raining, which means my hair gets messed up and reduces my chance of pulling! Haha

lol oh it ok i'm sure you'll get over it.. Honestly I didn't know the GDR was such a long range so I learned something Having said that, I stick by what I said about Australian mountains vs American and Canadian - the OZ one's are wimps in comparison.
