Ocean on all sides, blistering bushland, vibrant coastal cities — these are just some of what characterize the land Down Under. Though notoriously long to reach for travelers, Australia is rich with landscapes to explore and an open, friendly culture to enjoy. Because our #CityGlimpses series on Steller focuses on Australia for the month of March, we want to bring our community together to share their Australian experiences, and for newcomers to gain some ground!

This Thursday, Mar. 15 at 2pm ET, we’ll be joined by co-hosts who are well-versed in Australia’s workings:
