Australia Day is nearly here! Are you a true blue Aussie?

All Aussies love Australia Day. January the 26th marks a day of celebration and a time to celebrate with mates just how lucky we are to live in this incredible country! In Australia we are blessed with freedom, democracy, inspiring role models and probably the most well known attribute – we are laid back and certainly not pompous!  Aussies have achieved some incredible world achievements, think of Don Bradman, Caroline Chisholm, Fred Hollows, Margaret Court, Ned Kelly, Dawn Fraser, Cate Blanchett, Cathy Freeman and the iconic AC/DC! How do you know you are a true blue Aussie? You need to be able to answer all of the following three multiple-choice questions correctly!
