Hi Nicolette,
Hope you enjoy your trip in may,we went over last November to Adelaide and we loved it we have also been to Perth which we liked and to Melbourne which we did not like that much, but our son stayed in Melbourne on a working visa for quite a while and he loved it and is looking at trying to get in there on a study visa in the future after he as finished his travels, it really is down to individual taste and its got to be better than england at the moment good luck with it all.
