Going south is usually always a safe bet. But for those who aren’t quiet ready to grab their parkas for Antarctica, consider heading to Australia. According to the classic post-apocalyptic fiction On The Beach by Nevil Shute, Melbourne is an excellent bet. The plot suggests that if nuclear war breaks out in the northern hemisphere, the Victorian capital is likely to be one of the last places the radiation cloud reaches. It also helps that you’re close to gorgeous beaches and some of the most fun party people in the world.
