I want to feel like I'm not being pressurised too much and be able to walk to the beach without too much pollution. Also I would like to meet people that are kind and not fashion concious but just smart and polite.

perth is really laid back so it sounds like the kind of place you are looking for. Brisbane is also pretty laid back and there are loads of great beaches to the north on the sunshine coast. Personally i preferred sydney and melbourne as i found perth and brisbane a little quiet but obviously it's an individual thing.

for tourists id say somewhere over east, depending on what youre looking for. party animals should prolly stay east. but dont rule out WA. there is some really gorgeous nature, forests and the valley of the giants, and big wave surfing down south tbut then deserts and small fishing towns, tropical climates up north.

to LIVE however, perth hands down. its cheaper (tho atm housing is expensive) with transport and going out, and is way more laid back than over east. if you wanted to live like a perthy but not live IN perth go to brissie. its a bit more hyped up with teh night life but its still pretty chill there. anywhere in queensland or in the metro area of WA are the best i think...
