With Australia Day right around the corner, we’ve been havin’ a yarn about the most true blue, Aussie things to ever happen. Things that make you go “Straya” without even thinking, as if the reaction was prompted from somewhere deep within you. And when it comes to all things Aussie, Coopers Pale Ale is ’bout as Straya as you can get, ‘specially ‘coz it’s Aussie made and owned. Here at PEDESTRIAN.TV, we decided to partner up with our mates at Coopers and present you with the 25 most Aussie things to ever happen. Oi, Oi, Oi.
When it got so hot that the country was basically one giant fireball.

When spiders were literally everywhere, all the time (in fact, there’s probably one on you right now, let’s be real).
