Very true!! I am always amazed by how old things are in Europe, our history is so insignificant compared to UK etc. and when we start doing family history you get to the end of the research you can do here very quickly.
Ok Australia has beauty etc but not much history

I agree about the scenery, and the flora and fauna. Mind you, when I hear some Aussies boasting about their 'antique' furniture - and it's only 30s stuff.... :D

I read yesterday that one of the12 Apostles had crumbled into the sea - I know there were only 8 or 9, but now there is one less.... So, sad a real natural wonder and I've got loadsa photographs of them. I wonder if the tourist people will change the name?!

For those who don't know what I'm talking about....!

It did fall into the sea. You aren't allowed anywhere near them now so if your photos are from close to them on the beach they will be very valuable.
I love watching Bargain Hunt on UK tv to see all your antiques cause we have nothing here!

Mine won't be valuable, as they were taken from viewing places up on the top, I'm afraid. Oh well, have to find another way to make my millions!

If my city disappeared, I would love to live in Fiji. It's a bit too hot, so hopefully some benevelont government would give me loads of compensation for my city disappearing so I could afford not to work and just live in the pool all day!!!

Mrsmac I love Bargain Hunt, I am originally from Oz and have lived in the UK for three years. It does make me laugh what Aussies consider to be antiques!!!
