A good State to be in

So, which State do you want to visit first? There are 6 States and 2 Territories in Australia

One of the territories, the Northern Territory, is as big as a State, while one of the States, Tasmania, is very small (the island on the bottom right).

I live in South Australia, which is centre bottom.  The largest State is Western Australia and they market themselves as “Australia’s best-kept secret”.

According to a government tourist agency, the statistics show that most visitors (national and international) visit States in this order of preference:

  • New South Wales (NSW),
  • Queensland (Qld),
  • Victoria (Vic),
  • Western Australia (WA),
  • South Australia (SA),
  • Tasmania (Tas),
  • Northern Territory (NT) and then
  • Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

Each State has its merits, attractions, discouragements. I’ll deal with each one in as much detail as I have on them, from experience, as honestly as a mate.

Safe travels.
