Happy Australia Day! 10 weird facts about Aussies

With Australia Day almost upon us we thought we'd take a look at some of the quirks of our cousins down under.

From world-beating fences to beer-swilling prime ministers, this is a country with a few surprises up its sleeve. Here are our ten favourite weird facts about the land down under...

Obesity




Australia is the most obese nation in the world, beating the US by a narrow margin with 26 per cent obesity rate, compared with 25 per cent in the US.

Holiday prints




Koalas have fingerprints indistinguishable from humans, and are the only non-primates to have them.

Fork out




Male koalas, like many marsupials, have two penises... and lady Koalas have corresponding, er, equipment.

Gambling




Australians are more partial to a flutter than any other nation on earth, spending the most money on gambling of any country. 20 per cent of poker machines can be found in Australia.

Fast forward




The Australian coat of arms features an emu and a kangaroo, which are said to represent how Australia is a country which is always moving forward. Neither emus nor kangaroos are able to walk backwards.

No dogs




The longest fence in the world is found in Australia. The 5,614km Dingo Fence was built during the 1880s to protect sheep in the south-eastern parts of Australia from the wild dogs.

Winter wonderland




The Snowy Mountains in Australia receive more snowfall in one year than the Swiss Alps.

Down it




Former Aussie Prime Minister Bob Hawke holds a Guinness World Record for beer skulling. While at Oxford University in 1963 he skulled 2.5 pints of beer in 11 seconds.

Rammed




There are around eight sheep for every one person in Australia. 120 million sheep!

Horsepower only




It is illegal in Melbourne to drive a dog or goat harnessed to a vehicle in a public area. Just in case you were considering it.
