Another word for an Australian; a person usually living in Australia or whose parent/s are Australian. There are many stereotypes for Australians, such as them drinking too much beer, being dumb and ugly, all of them being farmers, living in the outback, riding kangaroos to school/work and having pet koalas, always wearing singlets and thongs (the shoes, that is!), using slang all the time, eating wombats and kangaroo, and overall being an idiot that nobody likes. Despite what many non-Australians might think (especially Americans), THIS IS NOT TRUE. While some Aussies may use slang, some may be farmers, and most drink beer, the majority of us are just like any other Western culture, such as in America or New Zealand.
Many great celebrities are also Australians, including Delta Goodrem, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Elle MacPherson, The Veronicas, Olivia Newton-John, Paul Hogan and Lleyton Hewitt.
