Either way, when I was growing up (in Ireland) I thought China was across the whole bottom of the world, because I thought that it was this giant landmass that you reached no matter where you were in the northern hemisphere when you dug a straight line down.
Turns out I was wrong. Before explaining the slight problem of the Earth's molten core, my Dad told 6 year-old me that we'd hit Australia.
Celebrated as a country where you're forced to wear gym shorts on Christmas day because of the heat, where the glory of Fosters beer came to be, and a place nothing like its depiction in Home and Away, the world's always been fascinated with the land down under.
To showcase some of the entertainment the country has to offer beyond Bondi beach, and calling flip flops "thongs", please enjoy 3 of our wonderful, Aussie customers:
