I am Australian so some of the things that make us famous? Vegemite.. Isn't actually Australia owned anymore which is crud. Kangaroo's are awesome. Standing by the bbq and having a beer is always fun Thongs (shoes) Steve Irwin is pretty awesome Nicole Kidman is Australian. We are in the middle of a continental plate so we don't get earthquakes (although I don't think that makes us famous) Probably the main thing is the actors and actresses that come from Aus and our native wildlife, such as Koala's and Kangaroos. Oh yeah and can't forget the accents and how people always assume we say "G'day mate" even though not all of us do. I actually say Howdy.

It's the people here. Australians go out of their way to be nice and helpful to tourists which is why the tourists think the place is so great.
They already know about the things they want to see, like the water, beaches, deserts, and tourist attractions, but when they meet the aussie people that's when they say "hey this place is great"
I was at a camping ground the other week and these English tourists were there who clearly had no idea about camping, We helped them out with a few basic pointers and loaned them some items and they were overwhelmed. They couldnt believe that we had even bothered to notice they were having difficulties, let alone offering to help.
That's what makes Australia Famous. The Americans love us!

The media makes us famous.
Such things like movies "Mission Impossible", movie stars "Mel Gibson", musical bands "Red Hot Chili Peppers", singers "Kylie Minogue", just being in the news "Belangalo serial killer", sporting events "Rip Curl Pro Am", and such like, that the media disseminates around the world makes Australia famous.
There are many examples of each and no doubt everyone can contribute to such lists and argue about which is more famous etc.
But basically fame is driven entirely by the media is some way or another.
So the media "makes" the subject "Australia" famous.

I'd go along with Big Waz right down to the last bit. Most Americans have never heard of us, and the ones that have think we all sound like Steve Irwin or Paul Hogan.
