001 Down Under and Beyond – Introduction, Welcome and Some Quick Australian Geography

by Brett Parry on December 13, 2013


In this, the very first episode of Down Under and Beyond, I put out the welcome mat and introduce some of the fun we will be having as we head down the track of presenting some of the travel and lifestyle aspects of Australia. I talk about the fact that quite a number of people that I come across that say it is their dream to visit Australia, and why my response to that statement is a little jarring.Australia

I mention a little about how we need to consider and recognize some of the reasons we travel, along with the great cultural aspect it can expose us to. There’s a little introduction to me, and we also have a bit of laugh at Australia’s reputation in the wildlife department.

Finally, we take a quick flyover of Australia and point out some of the facts relating to it’s various states and territories, as well as give you some perspective as to the general size of the place. Follow along with the map below.

Thanks Carolyn. I reckon there might be an Aussie Kingdom feature in the future.
