What is the Australian lifestyle like?
If you are coming to Australia to study, there is one thing that you really need to know before you come: Australians love sport. In fact sport, either playing or watching, is the number one priority for many Australians. Cricket in summer, football (any one of the three codes) in winter, and soccer in between. There is always some form of sport on.
One of the reasons you are coming to Australia to study, presumably, is to experience the way of life here. Inevitably, that will involve some sort of sporting participation. If you are not overly interested in sport, but want to be able to carry on a conversation with your fellow students when the topic turns to sport (and it will), you can check out The Roar.The Roar is a sports news and opinion site where both experts and fans can submit articles and comment on a range of different sports. You can very quickly get an understanding of the important happenings in a range of sports including Rugby, AFL, League, Soccer, Cricket, Cycling, Horse Racing, and a range of other sports.

Remember, if you are playing sport in Australia and are injured, your OSHC will cover the cost of any stay in hospital. You may still incur significant costs if you need physiotherapy or any affiliated services, as these are not covered by OSHC. So play safely!What are your favourite sports websites?
