      I love Australia it’s such a great country, really enjoyed my time out there I really need to go back someday in the not too distant future. Great list and the fact your former Prime Minister holds a record for downing pints is truly sensational, another reason why Australia is great! Awesome post lots of fun facts.

      You forgot to mention about Melbourne (the most liveable city for 3 years in a row) !!

        Sorry Paulo!
        We can agree to disagree (not a huge fan of Melbourne! – I think we will need to go back to Melbourne and find what everyone loves abotu it! )
