Default countries visited since aged 18 for citizenship

So I'm now filling out my citizenship application after being here for 6 years. Im doing it online and the question asks:

Countries resided / visited

Since the age of 18, has the applicant lived or travelled outside of Australia?Since the age of 18, has the applicant lived or travelled outside of Australia?
YesNo
Give details of all countries that the applicant has lived in or travelled to since turning the age of 18, include:
  • Work or study outside of Australia
  • Holiday or leisure, including visits to the applicants country of origin
  • Business
  • Military deployment
Soooo! I really can't remember. I'm guessing at dates and don't have old passports to inform me.
How have others tackled this problem?

Thanks

lennycat is an unknown quantity at this point

Got stuck with this as well but the paper version of the form says to only consider the last 10 years, which makes things a lot easier. There was a similar question on my original visa application form, so I took the details from this and I have the dates of travel since I’ve been here.

I found my digital photo collection to be invaluable. Could easily tell dates of arrival and departure from these (as I usually take photos at airports).

I had to guess. Found out afterwards I'd got one trip wrong by two years. It's not vitally important to be exact.

Yep - just done it for a move to the US and a combination of photos and google calendar entries helped no end.
