Sorry, I am a third generation Indian and 2nd gen Polish American. I have never visited India or Australia, that being said I have heard my neighbors says it is a racist and deeply divided country. I have never heard, how you guys about care about aboriginal saying positives stuff.
sorry, I don't have first hand knowledge of your country. If isn't true, then I am extremely sorry.

Awesome wine. Also in Melbourne you have the 4 seasons, in winter it drops to 4-5 degrees at night. Well obviously I miss the snow but it's still ok.

Car laws? I don't know what these are, I know the luxury car tax is one thing, but I don't understand what else is a problem.

Quite a number of things in my personal opinion. Your crazy licensing scheme (Like no turbocharged cars with a P license... honestly, modern cars aren't necessarily turboed to be even fast), you can't own radar detectors and laser jammers, etc. Actually with the 9 demerits and ~$1000 fine JUST FOR OWNING A RADAR DETECTOR (With your detector consificated, of course) is quite literally some of the most ridiculous laws I've ever heard. I can pretty much do a burnout in a school zone and speed 20km/h over and get caught and still be charged with less.
Meanwhille in 48 states in the US and 3 western provinces in Canada, owning these things are, funny to say, perfectly legal. And we don't have more accidents compared to Australia.

I don't know what state you base your laws on, but it's similar in QLD.
1. P platers can't drive. Simple. Don't give them turbos or V8's until they have learnt to drive. That's common sense, even if 4 and 6's can reach higher speeds.

Australia is not in drought anymore. When we were in drought it did not have an effect on our everyday lives in capital cities, only water restrictions like not being able to water your lawn every day or wash your car with a hose using the city's water supply (use a bucket instead). Food prices were not that bad. The only the problem was when the price of bananas went through the roof, but that was because of a tropical cyclone not because of drought.
I know Australia has droughts to deal with

That is not true -- it is conditional and usually quite leanient for P plate drivers with a decent record.
I am on P-plate based license and own and drive a turbocharged Cruze 2011, which also has performance-enhancement modifications. The NSW government gave me approval in 48 hours.
I love generalisations... I could talk about how dreadful every single car mechanic is in Queensland, because not a single car on the road in QLD has a working set of indicators.
