Yeah, Australia is different and I think you would love it. I lived in Perth, in Western Australia, for 6 months and it was cool. If you have the chance to stay down there for a few months I don't think you would regret it.
Here's a plus - The girls will love your accent. They loved my accent and I'm a Yank. Actually, I think Australian women love anything that's not Australian.
Oh and the wine - Australia produces some of the nicest tasting wines in the world.
Oh, the sports also. Australian-Rules football is the best! It is kind of like a cross between American football, rugby, soccer and basketball. Here in the U.S. I don't watch any ball sports but in Aussie I was hooked!
It is a young Country, like the U.S. so you are not going to find any 900 year old churches or anything like that. But Perth, in my opinion, is like a decent sized American city with a touch of Europe thrown in. (that might just be because they drive on the wrong side of the road). But then you drive 20 minutes and you are in the Outback.
