Australia is a great place to teach English as a foreign language. I was in Sydney for about four months and really enjoyed working there, once I'd found a decent job. Have a look at my Australia page for my blogs but here are some useful links to find courses, jobs, and plan adventure trips in Australia.

Australia Travel Websites
While I was in Oz I travelled up the East Coast, stopping at Byron Bay, Brisbane, Fraser Island, The Whitsunday's, Townsville, and then shot into the outback towards Alice Springs to see Ayers Rock. Australia is a massive country and in three weeks I barely touched the surface. I'd recommend travelling round this amazing country. Here are a few websites to help you on your adventure.
