    A spin off from the "What part of UK would you rather live in"

    I live in Melbourne and believe it's an awesome place and all, would never want to leave it for any other state but Queensland is amazing when it comes to babes :D

    I doubt very many people know much about each city. Perhaps you could describe them for us. And how come the capital isn't even on the list?

    Sydney for the Opera House. I've seen it on the TV a lot over the years. I couldn't go to any part of Australia that was full of big spiders and snakes though. Is it all like that?

    Australia isn't all bush you know, well, the outback is but I wouldn't know, I've been living 20 mins from the city whole my life.

    Yeah but I've heard these big spiders and snakes get in to your house/garden. I think I'd die if I had to deal with those things every week. I feel like we can get massive spiders in England but it's nothing compared to what I've seen in Australia (on telly of course)!

    That's in rural areas of Australia, I've had spiders in the house, but nothing huge like the redback, etc. There are snakes in the city area, but only in the overgrown grass places, like the creeks.

    Which of those cities is nearest to some good mountains and isn't too hot?

    Probably Sydney because they have the most American stuff there because Americans vacation there.
