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!

(ANSWERS: 1B, 2C, 3A – but if you are a true blue you wouldn’t even need to check!)  So for this Australia Day, the 26th January 2014, we put together a list of 10 of the most favourite Aussie things! Check it out and see if yours is there (although it really should be all of them)!
