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.
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.

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.

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.
This adorable stubby animal proudly calls Australia its home.
As one of the most famous bands to ever come out of Australia, AC/DC undoubtedly deserve a spot on this list!
