The attitude of only hosting "OS surfers" is pretty wierd.

I too experienced it when I went to Melbourne last year, from where I live south of Perth, Indonesia and Singapore are closer to home and cheaper to get to than Melbourne, Sydney or any of Qld. Even when we fly over to the east coast, we do actually go "overseas" as the route taken usually crosses the southern coastline and ocean.

From where Beth lives, most of south east Asia would surely be much closer than southern Australia? So why does this attitude exist?

A trip within Australia by Australians should be done regularly by all of us, Australia is an incredibly beautiful and diverse country with attractions seen nowhere else in the world. And when we travel, our travel experiences are enhanced by couch surfing, after all isn't that why we're here?
