Introduction

Welcome to Australia, the Land Down Under. Australia is south of the Equator, in the Southern hemisphere, and from our perspective in the Northern hemisphere it looks far below on the globe, "down under".

This is a unique country in many ways. To start with, it is a whole continent in itself! The spectacular environment, its unique fauna, the history and lifestyle, the traditional Aboriginal culture and its distance from our own country, among many other peculiar aspects, make it a very special corner of the world to discover. Join me in this daring experience and have fun!
