Questions on Australia

Recommended Posts

The questions below about Australia, are from potential visitors.

They were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers

are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a

sense of humour.

 

Q:how do the plants grow? (UK).

A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.

 

Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA)

A: Depends how much you've been drinking.

 

Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)

A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles, take lots of water.

 

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)

A: What did your last slave die of?

 

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA)

That's so true!!! DROP BEARS!!!! I was told ALL ABOUT Drop Bears. Just before we went to the Blue Mountains. I was terrified. Rather intrigued.... but in a "they sound cool, but now I fear for my life" type way.

 

It took my friend quite a long time to get round to the fact that they're in fact ENTIRELY FICTIONAL.

 

Hmmmmm.... or so she says................ I'm not convinced......
