Australia’s toilets may flush in the opposite direction, and their seasons might be reversed in comparison to the north, but for those who are interested in witnessing unique wildlife and colossal ocean reefs the down under is the ultimate destination. Australian culture is very similar to the rest of western culture, with the exception of Aboriginal, Oceanian, and Torres Strait Islander cultures. The Australian dollar is worth slightly more than the US dollar, making for a very reasonable low budget yet all inclusive trip at about $60 USD per day. Luxury vacations would stretch to almost $500 per day, but that high class hotel rooms, gourmet cuisine, and world class entertainment. The biggest thing to consider is the cost of the flight to get there, which takes about 24 hours.
