American Things You'll Find In Australia That Will Make You Feel Right At Home

It might be called the Land Down Under, but it turns out there are more things Americans and Aussies share than you think!

1. 7-Eleven is on every corner.

7-Eleven is just as popular in Sydney as it is in L.A. Not only can you find this one-stop shop on every corner, they even have our iconic and favorite Slurpees as well! Looks like you don't have to travel halfway across the world for those cravings!

2. You can find some of your favorite fast food joints, too.

You'll be surprised to find Panda Express exists in Australia. Other places like McDonald's, Starbucks, and Subway you'll simply be happy knowing they're there in case you need your comfort food.

3. They've answered your prayers, by bringing in Target.

An American's go-to store for all essentials, looks like Australia jumped on the bandwagon to awesomeness as well.

4. Plus they've got some of our best junk food.

Doritos and Pringles? You bet. M&M's, Reese's, Kit Kats, and more of your Mars favorites? Oh, heck yeah.

5. At least they have Anytime Fitness to help you burn off those extra calories.

Unlike most parts of the world, Australia does provide 24 hour fitness facilities, just how we Americans like them. So if you're suddenly feeling motivated at 2 AM after finishing that whole bag of Doritos on your own, no problem, you've got a gym right down the street that's open. Plus, less people workout at night, so you can pour that sweat out and dress in a garbage bag for all you care.

6. Or you can toss your gym clothes to the side because yes, there is a God, and he brought The Cheesecake Factory to Australia!

According to an article on Australian Food News, The Cheesecake Factory has introduced some of its cheesecakes into supermarkets such as Woolworths, bringing you some of our original favorites like the fresh strawberry cheesecake.

Although there are many things that seem totally out of this world in Australia for us Americans (like marsupials, Vegemite, and your whole crazy summer-in-the-winter and winter-in-the-summer phenomenon), turns out you can still have some of your beloved products and stores on the other side of the world.
