5 Questions in Australia You Should expect to Hear!
When traveling Australia you’re naturally going to meet lots of Australians. Just while you’ll probably have lots of questions for them on what it’s like to be Australian (I mean, do they REALLY call it the barbie and do they really eat kangaroo?) they’re going to have just as much questions for you.
The questions you get in Australia will vary of course depending on the person, but these are 5 questions you will hear without a doubt while in Australia.
Where are you from?
This is a natural question to ask, but after a while it will begin to drive you a little bit crazy. “I don’t want to tell another person where I’m from for God’s sake!!” you’ll think to yourself.
But you won’t say that, you’ll just kindly smile and tell them.
How long have you been traveling?
This is another one of the many questions in Australia you’ll be asked all. The. Time. This question always leads to more questions, which makes it one of the worst ones to get.
No matter what your answer is, it leads to a billion others.
Don’t get us wrong, questions are great and learning about one another is fantastic, but sometimes you just don’t want to be asked this question every single day.
Where have you been?
Australians love their country and they’re always very interested in where in the country you’ve visited.
Of the many questions in Australia, this one is probably the most fun because if you haven’t been somewhere that you should, these people will probably tell you about it and you can make plans to see even more of the country you may never even have known you wanted to visit.
How long will you be here?
Just like how long you’ve been traveling, you’re bound to get this question while traveling Australia all the time.
It’s natural to ask how long you intend to stay somewhere if you’re traveling long term.
And if you don’t have the answer, that’s ok, it’s not like they’re asking to subtly imply you to leave or anything.
What do you think of Australia?
Of all the questions in Australia, this will probably be one of the most common and most fun to answer.
Australia is a beautiful country and having someone ask you what you think of it allows you to relive all of the awesome moments you’ve had so far and think about all of the amazing places you still want to visit.
It’s very common to hear all of these questions in Australia, and as tedious as they sometimes might be, it’s always great to build relationships with locals and other travellers because they’re what makes traveling quite so special.
