|Myths About Australia
We dont go around in Acubra hats and stubbie shorts drinking Fosters.
We do not have Koalas and Kangaroos as pets, nor do we see them unless we go to a zoo. Koalas are endangered and Kangaroos are considered as pests by farmers.
We do not all live within a kilometre of a beach and walk around in our swimming costumes all year round.
We do not live in the outback eating grubs in towns where inbreeding is the done thing! There is about 19 million people in Australia and the majority of us live in cities. The largest city in Australia is Sydney with a population of close to 4 million.
