Can you believe it's Sunday again? Here are some Aussie facts for us all. Hope you're enjoying the weekend!
A fun fact: The longest fence in the world, designed to keep the dingo away from sheep, runs for over 5500 kilometers.
A sad fact: 21% of the world's gambling machines are found in Australia.
An interesting fact: In the entire world there are only two mammals which lay eggs. Both of these mammals originate in Australia.
An impressive fact: Australia has the record number of in-vitro babies born in the world. They were also responsible for the first test tube twins, triplets and quadruplets. Even the ultra sound machine was invited in Australia. Other inventions coming from Australia are the surf lifesaving reel, the anthrax vaccine, the rotary hoe, heart pacemaker, and permanent-crease trousers.
See you tomorrow :)
