You should check out the 'Good Universities Guide'- to be honest, it depends on what you want to study and where you want to live and what climate you are hoping for. If you are coming for the 'student experience' then some universities are much better than others. The Good Universities guide will give you more information about courses rather than the student perspective on each institution.
UTAS is great, if you want to live in tassie, rent is cheaper than in other parts of Aus and it is a good Uni all up. If you want to live somewhere warmer and more 'happening' then perhaps check out some ｕｎｉ’ｓ ｉｎ Ｓｙｄｎｅｙ， Ｍｅｌｂｏｕｒｎｅ ａｎｄ ｅｖｅｎ Ｐｅｒｔｈ （ＷＡ）．

Well are you looking to get courses recognised in your University? Or are you looking to just do a semester of courses in Australia for your own personal development?
If you are looking to get courses recognised from a Norway institution you will need to find a University with an exchange agreements with an Australian institution.
For example UTas has an agreement with Tromso University about 11 years ago
for my own personal development, and "get away from Norway".
explore other countries.
(I did this in Bangkok, began as a tourist for 3 weeks and ended up as university student for 3months, where i learned Thai language, culture, party life eq.) about 11 years ago
Im a utas student so I mostly know about that. Here there are a number of courses that might interest you such as geography ones where you go out into the field and see some natural stuff which might interest you. Also there is a tourism "antarctic studies" course or something along those lines which is a course you can do by distance from anywhere about tourism in antarctica (but people usually only do that one because its a bludge), there is a rumor though that there will be a new tourism course here offered as a "summer school" course which is all about tourism interpretation in tasmania and tourisms impact on the environment here where you go out and do all these bushwalks, kiyaking etc and stuff which would be perfect for you. http://www.utas.edu.au/
Aside from here though I swear by Wollongong (a.k.a "the gong"). Its a really beautiful area a 1.5 hour train ride from central Sydney and a cranking and friendly student/surf/party town. http://www.uow.edu.au/index.html
Another uni in an interesting place is the university on the Sunshine Coast http://www.usc.edu.au/. Havent heard a lot of good things about the uni but hey its on the Sunshine Coast!
