Thought to stem from 1700s British use of ‘hooray’ - often said at the end of the working week or school day, ‘hooroo’ can be heard across the country as Aussies bid each other farewell.
While the Irukandji jellyfish may look weak and wobbly, its sting packs a serious punch and can be fatal. Luckily for us, these venomous creatures usually prey on small fish not Aussie swimmers.
This term is perhaps most recognised for its use in Banjo Paterson’s famous song, Waltzing Matilda, where the jolly swagman steals a jumbuck (a male sheep) that has come to drink from the billabong.
The old saying ‘a dog is a man’s best friend’ couldn’t be truer in the case of a working kelpie on an Aussie farm. Kelpies have great energy and stamina and can run up to 60 kilometres a day.

These marsupials may have a fierce name but in reality, they’re shy, nocturnal animals. And while they bare their teeth in a fierce-looking snarl this is likely to be a yawn or a sign of nervousness.
Undara Lava Tubes
Four hours south of Cairns, you’ll find yourself in the picturesque Undara Volcanic National Park, which features four species of micro-bat and one of the world’s longest lava tubes.Australia Post and The Royal Australian Mint acknowledge the Ewamian People, traditional custodians of Undara Volcanic National Park, Qld.
Sandwich smooth, thick, vanilla custard between flaky puff pastry, finished with a thin layer of icing and you’ve got yourself a traditional vanilla slice. No wonder Aussies love ‘em!
Australia is home to two thirds of the world’s wattle, so it’s no wonder they’re such an iconic part of our landscape. They can be quite fragrant so are often used in perfumes and potpourris.
