I Hate Living In Australia

For those who wish they had been born somewhere else, or at least had the means to escape... 438 People

    Living in Australia, is like living in a horror

    movie. In the beginning of your tale, you move into a "beautiful" house, with the belief that you are "privileged" and "lucky". Nice, isolated house, by the ocean, fresh air and sunny beaches! For a few days you REALLY enjoy it, you overlook a few "small" flaws, some shady and...

    Lonely.

    I moved here over 6 years ago and am having one hell of a time making friends, finding work, fitting in, not being bored out of my damn mind............. It wasn't my choice to move here so it's no surprise I'm not happy. I just wish I had friends, that I could confide in, that...

    Physically I love Australia the Country is truly unique Beautiful and its wildlife and fauna unmatched anywhere in the world. What Im thoroughly disappointed in is the mentality and arrogance of its locals. I truly believe that the British sending their Convicts over in...

    Word Of Advice For Newcomers

    It IS decent of newcomers to Australia, like opiated and deadjellyfish before her, to defend a culture in which they are a visitor, and which they don't understand. I can't fault that. It is the right thing to do... if one is unsure about a people, it is best to default to...

    Although I am only young,

    I've seen enough to make a fair and solid judgement. This country is absolutely not for me. This country has its upsides and its downsides, but you seldom see any of the downsides from any mainstream media outlet. From what I have seen, Australians tend to completely and...

    A Warning To Any One Thinking Of Migrating To Australia !

    Be aware of the following; 1. False and Misleading Advertising – this is condoned at all levels. One example is in tourism. The country is promoted as having great beaches. However when you arrive here you will discover that ALL of the beaches in tropical Queensland are...

    Is Australia A Dream Or Bs

    Selling BS to the world disguised as a DREAM. Ruthless depredation of people’s lives from all over the world by getting them sucked in with “blue water and pristine beaches” propaganda. Most of us on this forum know that the blue water and the beaches are for real BUT the...

    Australia is being destroyed from within.

    (Happening as well in other western countries). Still the people do nothing about it. Mass immigration is destroying the country and changing the demographics. In our major cities backyards are disappearing by ugly townhouses and apartments. Public transport isn't improving...

    Aussie Psychology.

    In an attempt not to generalise all Australians, I'm going to use the term 'aussie' only for those who identify with being 'true blue', are proudly ignorant and full of social weirdness. There are even foreigners who suck up the redneck culture so easily I'd call them aussie as...

    Pure Denial

    Hey people! Feast your eyes on this reality.

    Freedom is a Joke In Australia
