Australia

Etymology

From Latin Terra Australis (16c.), from australis “southern” + -ia. A hypothetical southern continent, known as terra australis incognita, had been proposed since 2c. Dutch explorers called the newfound continent New Holland; the current name was suggested 1814 by Matthew Flinders as an improvement over Terra Australis “as being more agreeable to the ear, and an assimilation to the name of the other great portions of the earth” [“Voyage to Terra Australis”]. In 1817 Gov. Lachlan Macquarie, having read Flinders’ suggestion, began using it in official correspondence. The ultimate source is Latin auster “south wind,” hence, “the south country.” [online etymology dictionary]

How to Find a Date

How to Find a Date

AussieCupid.com.au – I really can’t say enough good things about the Cupid Media brand (owners of AussieCupid.com.au). I found my wife on AussieCupid.com.au’s sister site BrazilCupid.com. To get straight to the point, if I had to sign up for only two sites, it would be this one and RSVP.com.au (which I will go into greater detail below). This site isn’t as big as RSVP, but I prefer the pricing, which is subscription vs. RSVP’s “stamp” system. [visahunter]

eHarmony.com.au – With approximately 33 million members across the globe, eHarmony has established itself as a worldwide leader in the online matchmaking industry. Founded by accomplished author and psychologist Neil Warren, eHarmony offers an array of sophisticated matching elements that enable it to stand out from competing sites. While the price of membership is more costly than many competitors, eHarmony members benefit from an unprecedented level of web design and features. [visahunter]

OasisActive.com – OasisActive.com (i.e. Oasis) is a third option you can try if you are considering online dating in Australia. Oasis is only a site I would try if the fish aren’t biting on any of the sites above. The site is massive and completely free (you get what you pay for of course). This site was launched in 2008, quickly becoming one of Australia’s biggest dating sites. In 2014, Oasis merged with another Australian online dating giant, RSVP.com (which I mentioned above), in an effort to reach more members globally. [visahunter]

OKCupid.com – OKCupid is a popular site worldwide that I’ve used in both South Africa and Brazil. It resulted in almost no results for me. Looking back on my history with this site, I think I’ve only had 1 date max despite hundreds of messages sent. Man is it super frustrating. I wish they would add some more barriers to make it harder for pretenders to be active on the website. [visahunter]

RSVP.com.au – Founded on Valentines Day 1997, RSVP is the other site that I would definitely sign up for whether you are an expat in Australia or a local looking for love. It is user friendly and has really improved since I first entered the site way back in 2013. RSVP is the giant of online dating in Australia. It has lots of members (2 million+), and the rate of response is surprisingly high for such a large site with so many members. [visahunter]

Festivals

Festivals

Deniliquin Ute Muster – For those playing at home, a ‘ute’ is a truck with a flat bad tray behind it. Deniliquin is, unsurprisingly, the name of a town in Australia. Colloquially known as the Deni Ute Muster, it’s one of Australia’s most uniquely Aussie festivals. This annual celebration of Australia’s most versatile working truck sets Guinness World Records every year for ‘Most Utes in One Place’, but is much more than just a celebration of the popular farm vehicle. [aussie on the road]

Golden Gumboot Festival – As Australia’s wettest town, Tully is so proud of the claim that they hold an annual festival to celebrate the fact. The Golden Gumboot Festival takes its name from the oversized gumboot monument the town erected in 2003 to celebrate their wetness (there’s a sentence I never thought I’d type) and includes live music, cultural performances from the local indigenous people, a parade, and the usual festival bells and whistles. [aussie on the road]

Henley –on-Todd Regatta – Another odd yet iconic race, the annual Henley-on-Todd Regatta is held in the land-locked and very dry town of Henley. As all great things did, it started out as a joke on the British and has since become an institution. Events include a beach sprint, sand skiing, the Tour de Todd, and a number of other nautically themed boat races taking place entirely on dry, dusty land. [aussie on the road]

Skyfire – Australia’s capital gets in on the game with their annual celebration of fireworks, Skyfire. As the only state in Australia in which it is legal to purchase fireworks, the Australian Capital Territory rubs it in the faces of everybody else by blasting several dozen tonnes of the Chinese sky flowers into the air on a cool March evening. [aussie on the road]

The Australian Celtic Festival – If you ever drive the inland route between Brisbane and Sydney, you might notice you pass through quite a few towns with distinctly Celtic names. Names like Glen Innes, Glencoe, Ben Lomond, Armidale, and the inexplicably Welsh, Llangothlin. Every year, Glen Innes plays host to a celebration of the region’s Celtic roots with the Australian Celtic Festival. Each year a different Celtic ‘nation’ is selected, with Wales getting the nod in 2015 and the Isle of Man having had the honour in 2014. [aussie on the road]

The Beer Can Regatta – Another unorthodox race out of Australia’s most famous non-state, the Beer Can Regatta is a fancy name for a competition in which people must construct boats out of beer cans and race them along a picturesque Darwin beach. Competitors construct inventive boats and then pray they’ll stay afloat as they hit the surf. Thankfully, the beaches of Darwin are saltwater crocodile free. [aussie on the road]

The Camel Cup – Horse racing is big business in Australia. Look no further than the way the Melbourne Cup brings the country to a standstill each November for evidence of this. The folk out in dry and dusty Alice Springs (most famous for its proximity to Uluru) do things a bit differently, with the annual Camel Cup featuring (you guessed it) jockeys riding camels and fighting for the right to lift the Camel Cup. [aussie on the road]

The Country Musical Festival – I was torn between including Tamworth’s signature event and the famous Gympie Muster out of Queensland, but the presence of a giant freaking golden guitar gives Tamworth the edge. Aussies might not be quite as crazy about their country music as our American friends, but each year the hot, dry town of Tamworth floods with country music enthusiasts out to celebrate Australian country music. [aussie on the road]

The Elvis Festival – For the life of me, I can’t tell what Elvis Presley has to do with the sleepy little town of Parkes – but each year in January the town’s population literally doubles as people trek to the city for a five day celebration of The King. From humble beginnings as a simple tribute show back in 1993, the Parkes Elvis Festival now draws over 15,000 visitors over five days and features tribute performances, authentic Elvis memorabilia, and a variety of other weird and wonderful Elvis related events. [aussie on the road]

Tunarama – The name might give it away, but Port Lincoln in South Australia is a big tuna fishing town and it’s proud of it. Tunarama is a four day celebration of the region’s tuna fishing industry held each January, but it’s most famous for the Tuna Toss. Brave men and women can try their luck at hurling tuna as far as humanly possible, with the current record standing at an impressive 37m. [aussie on the road]
