Description

This entertaining book is a light-hearted but factual look at the Australian way of life. It covers all aspects of `the lucky country', including the main Aussie icons, the Aborigines, sport, pubs, `kulture', taxi drivers, gambling, dress, language and the main cities. Little-known facts are given, nuggets of history are unearthed and surprising statistics are presented, together with a host of amusing stories and anecdotes. The book also includes a detailed look at Australia's unofficial national anthem, `Waltzing Matilda', and the classic ballad, `The Man from Snowy River'. It's All About Australia, Mate is a good read for anyone interested in our nearest neighbour and for anyone about to visit Australia. Unlike any other book on the market, this is the complete guide to the Australian way of life and a good laugh to go with it.
