About This Quiz

Australia is one of the safest countries in the world with a great economy, friendly people, incredible cuisine and some of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable.  That said, it's also known as a death trap that's jammed wall to wall with some of the deadliest creatures on Earth ranging from spiders to snakes to even a few species of plants that cause intense pain if you touch them.  And that's not to mention all the invasive species that overrun areas in biblical plague swarms.  Plus there's a history of terrible heat waves, brutal and damaging fires, and rampant, uncontrollable flooding.  It's a bit of a circus.  

Like any place on Earth though, there's more to it than meets the eye.  Most Australians get by just fine without fear of deadly spiders and sharks. They have a rich and fun culture, an amusing set of slang you won't find any place else on Earth and a laid-back spirit that just seems like you want to be a part of it.  And hey, maybe you already are. Whether you're fully Australian, a transplant or just someone with aspirations to meet a kangaroo one day, why not take our quiz and find out just how Australian you really are?
