I live in a small town called Warwick in Queensland, Australia. We are 2 hrs from the capital city Brisbane (where we moved from 2 years ago). Warwick is known as the Rose and Rodeo city .. famous for, you guessed it, its roses and its rodeo. Roses because it is the only place in queensland cold enough to grow them (minus 7 is common overnight in winter … not that cold compared to some places but we are largely tropical climate!) It is a nice quiet country town with enough facilities to never have to leave town if you dont want to. I was city born and bred (Melbourne which is the 2nd largest city in Aus after Sydney)so slowly becoming more country-fied.

I spent 6 months in the US as an exchange student so have heard of some of the places you guyes live. I was in Bellingham, WA up near the Canadian border (aldo bloody cold in winter)

it is fun to read where everyone is from and what places are famous for
