You Aussies set the bar way too high for the rest of us travellers. What a great society that encourages its youth to see so much of the world.

I wouldn't say that's the reason. I think it's more a case of, once you're out of Australia, you want to see and do as much as you can while you have the chance. At least that's my experience

Whatever the reason, most Australians I know have travelled to more places than I would have ever considered feasible for the young(ish).
