Isn't it strange to say 'came to that <place>' in English?

Yes, it is. They should change it to "go" instead.

It's not strange but it's not really used a lot if that makes sense. You can still use it in contexts where you're detailing your intentions like: "I came to the US looking for a better life but I've since returned to Australia because I prefer it here".

Are you from Australia? Is that how they would say it down there?

Not correct. Come to here, go to there. So I went to the US but I came back here.
