I love Australia. I love the vast expanse of striking, outdoor, stunning land. I love the chilled out, can-do, low-whinge nature of the people. I love that the culture extends back for thousands and thousands of years - and yet at the same time is so very, very new.

"There's an expression in Australia called "go bush," which means to get out of the city and relax. I try and "go bush" to places where there's no cell reception. But I don't get to do that often, so for the most part, it's just a state of mind." Cate Blanchett
