Earlier this year I did academic visits in Melbourne and Sydney, which allowed me to visit various campuses and enjoy the OZ academia vibe. The more engaging visit was at UNSW, and before and after the talk I walked around the campus a bit. It was during their summer break (January), so it seemed deserted, mostly, but things were open, and I was able to get a bit of a feel for the campus. It was quite lovely, very spacious and green, felt like a real campus. The folks who hosted me were welcoming and friendly, and it all went far better than I expected.
Here’s a bit from my campus walk of University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia:
