    I've been fortunate to have lived in many of these places and I can assure you that such lists are a combination of folklore and suspect statistics! If interested in such, do the research.

    Lescol, I admit a bit of inexperienced bias here - I've never been overseas.

    I do tell people, however, that I believe we live in the best possible country at the best possible time.

    Love Australia, for all it's faults.

    With exception of visiting the Giles weather station (central WA) I traveled extensively within Australia before my first trip away from it. For much of my 30 years of traveling OS I too believed similar but sadly, since maybe '02, my views about 'home' have changed.

    Now I cringe over the quality of the elected members there and their lack of vision and inspiration for the public. A warning, the plot there has now been truly dropped and a decade of development has been lost.
