The 10 Best Things To Come Out Of Australia

Kangaroos, Sexy Accents, Chris Lilley. Australia’s definitely given us a lot of things to be thankful for. And with Chris Lilley’s “Angry Boys” on HBO, it’s just one more reason to celebrate “the land down under.”

1. Chris Lilley

Australian comedian Chris Lilley, the creator and star of the amazing “Summer Heights High,” returns to HBO in the new series “Angry Boys.” And like “Summer Heights High,” he plays multiple characters. This show can’t come soon enough.

2. Kangaroos

Who doesn’t love these adorable marsupials. And as the national symbol of Australia, this is one animal that you can’t help but love.

3. Heath Ledger (RIP)

Gone but not forgotten. This Austrailian born actor may have been taken from us too soon, but we will always have “10 Things I Hate About You,” “Brokeback Mountain” and “The Dark Knight.” We love you, Heath!

4. Koalas

C’mon, just look at that face!

5. Granny Smith Apples

This lovely piece of fruit is named after Maria Ana (Granny) Smith and originated in Australia from a seedling planted by Smith. Just another reason why Australia is awesome.

6. Yellow Tail Wine

The delicious YellowTail brand is produced by the Casella familly, and based in Yenda, Australia. The namesake of the brand, Yellow Tail, is the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby, a relative of kangaroos.

7. Wombats

This adorable stubby animal proudly calls Australia its home.

8. AC/DC

As one of the most famous bands to ever come out of Australia, AC/DC undoubtedly deserve a spot on this list!

9. Sexy Accents

The sexiness of the Australian accent is undeniable. We’ll let Kylie Minogue take it from here…

10. Vegemite

Sure, Vegemite may look gross, but it’s actually the world’s richest source of vitamin B. And if you do it properly, and only put a tiny smear on toast with a heap of butter, it’s salty and delicious!
