i went to sydney, newcastle, and port macquarie. it was great. only 10 days. want to go back to australia for much longer, like 3 months or more.
I lived there 3 years. Finally moved a month ago. Couldn’t take the rainy season – which lasts about 10 months. In Summer it’s beautiful though.
Other than the weather, it’s probably one of the top 5 cities in the US to live.
