Today is Australia Day, so we’re honoring the awesomeness of a country so far away, and yet, so close to our wildly beating hearts. Here is a brief, and by no means complete, list of reasons to celebrate the people, the culture, the geography and the crazy-amazing animals from Down Under.
Aussie Rules Football. It gets nuts.
Kangaroos, Koalas, Platypus &Wombats!!! Did you know male platypuses are venomous? Just something to keep in mind.
Rebel Wilson, Rose Byrne, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman, the Hemsworth brothers, Portia de Rossi. Thank you, Australia!
The cleanest air in the world is found in Tasmania.
Fairy Bread … This sweet Australian snack has an adorably whimsical name. It’s white bread, smeared with butter and covered with hundreds and thousands, that’s Australian for sprinkles.
