Jeziel found an article that shares misconceptions that non-Australians have of Aussie culture. There were 9 found on this article and they are:

  1. Toilet water flushes the opposite way from the rest of the world
  2. There are huge spiders that live by the toilet seats
  3. Everyone walks around barefoot
  4. Aussies encounter potentially deadly wildlife on a daily basis
  5. People are always fighting Kangaroos so they don’t touch their stuff
  6. Fishing is done with dynamite
  7. Aussies are forced to vote
  8. The Australian parliament has two main parties that are called the Koalas and the Kangaroos
  9. You always have to look out for drop bears

Thus, Bec and Jeziel HAD to ask the question, “What misconception do you have about Australia?”

The family got in touch and Daniel gave us a call and he said he knew someone that tricked an overseas student, telling her that she wasn’t allowed to bring wooly jumpers to Australia. She came over in July and was freezing!

Andy gave us a ring and before she moved to Australia everyone told her that Perth was a sunny island where the temperature stays between 25′ – 30’C all year round. She came in May and was freezing and had to buy new clothes!
