I Hate Living In Australia

For those who wish they had been born somewhere else, or at least had the means to escape... 408 People

    Death by sensory deprivation The longer I

    remain out of Australia, the more I detest the place... hey shouldn't that the other way around? The longer I remain out of Australia, the more I realize how my world view has been shaped by their toxic garbage - yes, even me who has probably understood Australia better than...

    I am sick and tired and fed-up with the

    impulsive immaturity that spews out of Australian mouths. And that is: Where there is serious debate and disagreement between people who "Hate Living In Australia" and people who "Love Living In Australia" ... Australians usually utter the following: If you don't like Australia...

    This post is directed to anybody considering

    moving to Australia. Don't be fooled by the promotion of this country being friendly, accepting, easy going, etc. Because the reality is very disappointing. You may have heard about Australia being a 'multicultural' society. This is complete nonsense. Australia is one of the...

    Don't let Aussies stop you from expressing

    yourself or your experiences. Let the world see how vile and filthy these people are in their responses to you. This forum is proof of how these inexperienced, childish and obnoxious aussies will tell you off if you expose them. It is fear and insecurity. You've open up their...

    I am so glad to find this forum

    and know that I am not alone. I hate Australia as I am bored out of my mind here. I came to Australia excited and with high expectations from my now fiancée who is born and raised in Sydney. He has a skewed view of Australia as this perfect almost Utopian place - as I have come...

    Well I am the complete opposite.

    This is the worst habit in people

    who love living in Australia is: If you don't like Australia, then leave. It is an automatic impulse in people's brains and it manifests itself in their vocal cord, and out it pops. Actually, it is never ending, and it will never end. People who hate living in Australia do...

    Freedom is a Joke In Australia

    is the lack of reform and progress. Nothing is done to reduce poverty or improve public transport and improve living standards. In fact Australia is getting worse and going backwards. Sydney is now a city of ghettoes, just look at the mini series ''struggle street.'' I read on...

    There are a couple of bogan Australians on this

    Aussie Psychology.
