Strewth! Liz Lifts the Lid on Life Down Under

So Liz, what would you say are the main differences between the UK and Australia?

Well I'm from Sydney in NSW, and the weather is amazing all year round. In Queensland there are 261 sunny days a year, which is a huge change from drizzly and grey UK! We also have a higher minimum wage, which is definitely a plus. Did I mention that coffee and biscuits are a million times better?! #TeamTimTams

What are your top tips for making the most of life Down Under?

Travel everywhere! There are so many amazing cities to see, and the road trip from Sydney to Cairns is just incredible - don't forget your sunscreen though, our summers can be pretty intense. It's a pretty boring one, but I'd also recommend investing in a good insect repellant for when you're in The Outback or Bush.
