Summary

One of Australia's most distinguished journalists takes a light-hearted but factual and comprehensive look at the Australian way of life. Our icons, indigenous peoples, sport, our pubs and culture, taxi drivers, our thirst for gambling, how we dress and speak and our major cities are just some of the subjects covered. 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 great read for all interested in the heritage, trivia and bits of Australian history. This is also a perfect book for visiting overseas tourists or those who just have an interest in life down under. Unlike any other book on the market, this is the complete guide to our way of life and a good laugh to go with it.
