Do they know how to make cars down-under? Did they ever manufacture a decent automobile? Of course they did, and not only that, the Australian car industry is trying very hard not to throw in the towel and to stay in the game. Whether they will manage to do that or not remains to be answered in the coming years.
Till then, our down-under reporter, Aaron, writes about the top most recent Australian made cars carrying the Made in Australia tag, which you can buy today, should you ever drop by Australia, or you were an Australian looking out to buy a new car.
The title is a little misleading, as pretty much everywhere in Australia is to be visited by car. Australia is such a vast land, with so much emptiness between cities and towns. I never quite understood what tourists meant when they told me how empty Australia was.
The distance, though, serves to make Australia a land that can be explored and adventured in. Below is a list of some of my favourite areas of this ancient land.
Australia has a long history of love and obsession with cars and motoring. Ever since the former Prime Minister Ben Chifley watched the unveiling of the Holden FX, Australians have shown their love and passion for motoring and cars. The biggest car manufacturers in Australia are Holden (a subsidiary of GM) and Ford Australia.
Because of the exorbitant costs of manufacturing, some say the future won’t have any Australian-made cars, which gives more value to the old classic ones that stood out the test of time and tried to leave their mark in the motoring history books. This is a list of my top 10 classic cars built and manufactured on Australian soil.
So, it’s that time of the year again. Buying Christmas gifts for friends, family, and acquaintances can be stressful. Especially if one of them is recently married! You know your best friend and what she’ll love and appreciate, but finding something that her man will get a kick out of, too? And what about all the great wedding gifts that they just received?
These are questions you have to figure out how to answer before you head to the mall or start shopping online. It’s probably best to have an idea of what they’ve already gotten to start out so that you can find them something different and special.
Australians are an interesting breed of people, living on an island isolated from the world. This distance from the old world means that Australians can develop a different sense of the world, making for some interesting reading in the blogosphere.
Below is a list of Australian bloggers who you should follow on Twitter. These bloggers will prove to you that deserve to have your attention over the other top bloggers.
A traveler may not be around for Christmas, but there’s no reason to forget their Christmas gifts. While it can be hard to shop for a traveler who is rarely at home long enough to need much, there’s many options out there that would make a jet setter smile, specially if he was an Aussie.
This is my personal list of top 10 Christmas gifts any traveler would love and appreciate as a gift, from the mind of a professional Aussie backpacker, yours truly, who is currently planing to spend his coming two years traveling the world (but that’s another story).
San Francisco is one of those magical cities that lives up to everything you’ve ever heard about it. The diversity of the city, the natural beauty, the great places to dine, cultural landmarks…the list goes on and on. It’s a city loved both by Americans and Internationally as a major West Coast headquarters.
I must admit: it is nearly impossible to “see” San Francisco in 24 hours. You could probably LIVE in San Fran your whole life and still not really see the city. But that’s okay- just play along. This is what I would do if given a day in San Fran and had to make the most of it.
Australia is a land known for its beautiful scenery and relaxing, laid back lifestyle. It’s also a country that takes in a high amount of foreign students into its universities. Australia is an attractive place to study, and It has world-class facilities, many of its universities are world-renown and offer students opportunities that aren’t to be found elsewhere.
It’s no surprise that this list isn’t based on academic performance for each uni, but rather on the city each university is in. Most Australian universities will give you quality education, but not all of them will give you the experience that the ones named here can. Let’s start:
Los Angeles seems to be the type of place you either absolutely love or never want to visit again. But I think the people who say they hate it have only seen the tourist traps; not that the touristy places aren’t worth a visit, but there is so much more to L.A. than the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
The city is so diverse in terms of food, landscape, and entertainment, you could easily spend a week or more exploring. But let’s say you only have 24 hours to squeeze in as much as you can. Here’s where to go to get a real taste of everything L.A. has to offer.
The year 2013 is already coming to a close, and it was a decent one for the car industry. But 2014 is just around the corner, and the new models are already hitting the market. If you have been looking to get a new car, but don’t want to break the bank, you can find some great options for under fifteen grand.
Here are the top 5 cars to buy for under $15,000.
