I have never been overseas so I must base my answer solely on what I've experienced here.
The beaches are beautiful, and in Sydney at least, the water temperature makes ocean swimming possible almost year round.
Areas of bushland have been set aside as parks, and this creates refuges for birds and animals. Australia is home to some of the world's most delightful parrots.
We also have our share of cultural facilities. The Sydney Opera House is situated to overlook Sydney Harbour.
All in all, Australia is a great place in which to live.(less)

Rosemary Clement-Moore
“Good writing is good writing. In many ways, it’s the audience and their expectations that define a genre. A reader of literary fiction expects the writing to illuminate the human condition, some aspect of our world and our role in it. A reader of genre fiction likes that, too, as long as it doesn’t get in the way of the story.”
