Kara's Journey to Australia

Current Location

Hobart, Tasmania

Hello, my name is Kara Maxwell and I'm currently taking fine arts courses through RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. I'm so excited to share this adventure down under with you all!


After a slight change of travel plans, I've ended up in New Zealand! It is a gorgeous island country that is about a three hour flight from Melbourne, Australia. Read on to find out more about it!


It's been so great to share my journey with you! It's a truly life changing experience to study abroad. I hope that hearing about my journey has encouraged you to seek your own abroad adventures!

Field Notes

Kangaroos are one of the national symbols of Australia. After meeting Chris 'Brolga' Barns, also known as Kangaroo Dundee, and his baby roos, I can understand why they are so beloved!


Australia has tons of critters running around. These photos show a few of the many that I've seen on my trip. What's your favorite animal? Do you think it could live happily in Australia?
