5 things you (probably) didn’t know about Australia

  1. In 1954, Aussie Bob Hawke made it into the Guinness Book of Record by drinking 2.5 pints of beer in just 11 seconds! Hawke would go on to serve as Australian Prime Minister between 1983 and 1991 – making him the country’s third longest serving PM. Hard to imagine David Cameron being able to boast a similar record, isn’t it!
  2. Between them, Australians consume an estimated 260 million meat pies per year. That equates to around 12 meat pies each.
  3. Australia is renowned for its year round warm climate. However, the Australian Snowy Mountains (known locally as the ‘Snowies’), located in southern New South Wales, actually receives more snowfall annually than the Swiss Alps! In June 1984, the climate station at Charlotte’s Pass recorded Australia’s lowest ever temperature; -23oC
  4. There are four different types of boomerang. They are: the hook, the hunter, the club, and the V. Of these, only the Hunter will come back when thrown.
  5. Australia is home to the world’s largest cattle ranch. Anna Creek, located in South Australia covers an area of 24,000 km2, and as of 2012 carried around17,000 cattle. If it were a country, the cattle ranch would be the 150th largest country or dependency in the world (out of 249). The countries it is larger than include Cyprus, Israel and Slovenia.
