The Top Ten

1 Dangerous Animals

To correct you, there are no gators down under. But more importantly, mate, I've been to Sydney, and not once was I bitten by a venomous spider or de-legged by a saltwater crocodile. I didn't even see anything that could potentially kill me except in a zoo. The most dangerous creature I ran into was a seagull. - PositronWildhawk

Yeah, there's no gators down under. I meant to say crocodiles. It's hard for me to tell the difference. - ethanmeinster

Spiders, snakes, jellyfish, great white sharks, dingoes, alligators, and many more animals. Even a koala can hurt you. - ethanmeinster

2 The Outback

One of the country's main attractions, the Sydney Opera House is renowned for its appearance in Sydney Harbor. - ethanmeinster

4 Vegemite

And I think you can predict that I'll side with Marmite every time. But I still like Vegemite. - PositronWildhawk

I'm Aussie and life in red dust evrywere and I hate veggi mite to the bone! Ps about the Dangerous animals there lots but once you know what to do with 20 reddies (Aussie slang between me and my mate for red backs) you're fine. Considering I started laughing at reddies at 6.

5 Kangaroos Kangaroos
