Travellers often underestimate the depth of cultural isolation they can face abroad, particularly in a country with a different language. To many people, Australia must seem an ‘easy’ option, with its long history of immigration, multicultural society and millions of annual visitors. However, sooner or later most newcomers find certain aspects of Aussie life alien – and some come unstuck as a result.
