    "Oi Mate!" I live in AUSTRALIA. ... Australia Definitely IS a Country Way Down South, so far south, that Your Confederate Southern States are all to our NORTH !! .... Australia is an island continent. In area, it can fit the USA into it & also all of Europe can fit into Australia. .... The state I live in is Victoria. It is the smallest of the mainland states. Yet,, Victoria can fit 3 Englands into it! ... The Largest Political Electorate in the World, is in Australia. It is called "Kalgoorlie" & has an area of Over 2.2 Million square kilometers! ... In the Northern Territory, it is true that any farm less than 1,000 square miles is called a "hobby farm". .... An' yeah,, we really do talk as though our mouths are shut, & in a single monotone drawl. Barbecues are Really called "Barby's", & only people who think they are better than everyone else say "bar-b-cue". The wide brimmed hats bit with the corks on them, is all "B/S", & are only made for Tourists to buy & wear! The Wide brimmed hat, is rarely worn in the cities, except by a few people trying to pretend to be "cowboys". ..... Where I live though, on the Gateway to the Outback,, it's so dry & hot & dusty here that a hat is necessary! (unless you like your brains getting sunburnt! ... We measure temperature in Celsius these days. ... In the cities, they think that 30+ C. is hot. Where I live,, we regard it as being "just a warm day" until it hits 40 C. When the temperature gets Over 45 C. Then we start to say that it's a hot day! ... (& it has even got up to or just over 50 C. Way way back!! .............. Farmers down here call the kangaroos, "grass hoppers". (I bet Texas don't get grasshoppers that big.) ........... Look,, If you want to know about Australia,, "Ask an AUSTRALIAN" !

    Source(s): I'm an Australia, I live in Australia, ....... So I reckon I might know more about Australia, than your American teacher, wouldn't you say? ...... "Oi,, tell him for me, he's a bluddy drongo." See what he says. (or does, be prepared to Duck! )

    No, it's not real. It's a USA conspiracy

      I think you might have to realise how wrong you are. I am pretty darn sure that if it was a so called "conspiracy" then don't you think it would be a global conspiracy? plus you a wrong, it is real, take a look at the word map, google maps or even google earth.
