About This Quiz

Australia is a magical land where people sound just a little like they are from the north of England, but not quite. Australia is a continent and a country, and no other nation can really lay claim to such status. Australia is also home to some of the strangest animals in the world, as well as many of the deadliest. It's the host of some of the world's greatest natural wonders, untouched indigenous cultures, cutting-edge technologies, and yes, vineyards. In addition to supplying the rest of the world with actors who play superheroes, Australia has a rich culture many outsiders never penetrate and a history going back centuries to pivotal moments in world affairs. Today, Australia is a Western nation in the Far East, where English is the national language, the national image abroad is one of tough guys, even though gun ownership isn't anything like it is in the U.S.A., and shocked tourists wander the cities looking for an authentic Outback Steakhouse.

If we could hear you say "fish and chips" we would know instantaneously if you were an Aussie or a Kiwi. Unfortunately, that avenue isn't open to us, so we will have to determine if you're an Aussie based on this "yes or no" quiz. Take it and test your knowledge of the land down under and her people.
