Adults average only one nightmare a year, but typically have seven sexual
fantasies a day.

There are twice as many kangaroos in Australia as there are people. The
kangaroo population is estimated at about 40 million.

The liver, not the heart, is the sign of romance in northern Morocco. When a
Moroccan girl falls in love she says, "Darling, you have stolen my liver."

In 1977, Alan Jones scored a surprise victory in the Austrian Grand Prix. Initially officials were going to play the Austrian anthem but then realised that Australia and Austria were not the same country. Unfortunately, they didn't have the Australian anthem so instead a local drunk played "Happy Birthday to You" on a trumpet.

For each person in Australia there are two sheep and over 16 rabbits

The first ever meeting of the Australian Labor Party (also the first political party to form in 1891) was held under a gum tree at Barcaldine, Queensland.
