Australia and New Zealand are a very long way from anywhere, but that docs not stop people from wanting to go there. To the Aborigines and Maori, these two countries were new homes that they could make their own. To the British, they were a place to put prisoners, and a land that could grow food for the hungry people of Britain. And today people go there from Asia, Europe, and almost every country in the world, to live there or just to visit.

And the most unusual things are waiting there. Farms as big as the country of England, and the steepest street in the world - it is hard to walk up it, and even harder to walk down! The biggest rock in the world, and a city where everyone has a holiday once a year - for a horse race. An animal with three eyes, and eleven men who do not play rugby until they have done a very frightening dance. If you are ready for surprises, come and see what life is like ‘down under’.
