1. Universal Healthcare

Via Universal Pictures

2. Inclusive GST prices

ABC / Via

Because when something says its $10.00 IT SHOULD COST $10.

Travel Channel / Via

Because Australians know that we don't need that extra kilo of fries.

4. Quality of fruit/vegetables/livestock

5. The beach


And the fact that most of us can get to one within 30 minutes.

6. Backyard and house size

Commsec / Via

7. Quality public education

8. Freedom


No matter what those Brits say!

9. Multicultural society


10. Nature

11. A fair minimum wage

Live Entertainment / Via

So that you don't have to rely on tips (but they're still nice.)

12. Weather


Because it can never be TOO BEAUTIFUL.

13. Swimming Pools (in abundance.)


14. Sport

15. Gap year culture


We live in a country that EXPECTS high school graduates to go travelling!
