I've been reading up on it for about two years. I'm starting to think I settled in the wrong place in Australia.
Faces Antarctica, no tsunamis from that side, uses the rest of the country as a buffer against the Pacific Rim.
By some accounts, it is almost possible to walk from the outer suburbs to the inner city completely underground, a feat previously only possible in Switzerland.
Melbourne was famed for being an underground city even before World War Two in Australia and during the war the Yanks helped pay to dig out the rest of the city below the streets for their troops. Some people believe private government tunnels actually run out to the mountains or farther.
Climate is cool and dry, not much trouble with the tropical mold and fungus that has attacked my shelter here. Air tends to be crisp and refreshing, usually charged with negative ions from cold air coming from the southern ocean.
I've also heard the average IQ in Melbourne is a good ten points above that of Queensland, this alone making it a very attractive destination. The city has a lot of work for IT people and seems to be weathering the depression pretty well at this stage. I've heard people from Melbourne speak in complete sentences and can walk and chew gum at the same time. This makes it seem almost ideal to me.
