    I wish I've been able to show you the Gold Coast on a more beautiful day, because it's not quite perfect. I believe there's a cloud behind one of those buildings over there. Australia is, of course, famous for its blue skies, beautiful sunshine, and the Gold Coast in particular. But Australians refer to it as beautiful one day, perfect the next. We have 300 days of sunshine a year and we look forward to welcoming you to Bond and the Gold Coast. See you soon!

    Australia is known for the sweltering hot weather in general, but we have all four seasons. However, it does depend on the state you're living in. I am in Perth, Western Australia, where we have hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. It is the sunniest capital in Australia with clear blue skies, with an incredible 70 percent of the year, which means warm weather, clean and air. And you'll be enjoying weekends and holidays outdoors at barbecues or swimming in the clear blue waters. Cannot complain with that.
