Playing it cool
Last updated: January 28th, 2013 by admin
As the Australian Tennis Open draws to a close, sports lovers can console themselves with the thought that Australia always has something to offer. Although possibly best known internationally for its love of cricket and the annual Australian Formula One Grand Prix, there are plenty of other sports to enjoy.
While horse racing fans in the Northern Hemisphere routinely have to accept numerous delayed and cancelled fixtures, horse racing in Australia continues to go from strength to strength, with some Australian horses such as Black Caviar establishing a global reputation. (Black Caviar is already being touted as a possible successor to Australian wonder-horse Phar Lap). Those who prefer horses to travel at a slower speed can enjoy trail-riding adventures at a more leisurely pace.
For those who prefer sports where humans put in most of the effort, Australia has become a key destination for cyclists, with plenty of options for both road-touring and off-road cycling. The country is also much loved by inline skaters, due to the quality of its roads and its general friendliness towards people travelling under their own steam.
It’s little wonder that Australia’s growing reputation for sporting holidays has fuelled a need for international workers. Those contemplating making the move “down under” would be well advised to ensure that immigration translations are undertaken by a NAATI translator to ensure that the process is as simple as possible.
