When I think of Australia I think of marsupials (mainly Kangaroos!), dingos, sheep, the Sydney Opera House, and Crocodile Dundee...When I was little I thought all Australians were like that. Also seems to be a very masculine culture from what I've heard.
Uh I feel bad, we spent half a year learning about Australia in English class and I feel like I can't remember anything.
So... when I think of Australia.. - all the crazy animals, not just the poisonous ones but overall how many species there are that aren't anywhere else - Aborigines and their spiritual system (the most interesting part of that half year) with the rainbow serpent etc. - the Lost Generation and all that nasty stuff because English class always seems to focus on everything bad English people have done? oO - the Sydney opera - how so many people think Sydney is the capitol - Uluru/Ayers rock
can't think of anything more right now that hasn't already been said
