Australia is a country and continent located at the southern tip of South East Asia that became independent in 1901. The country gained popularity online due to the continent’s rather extreme ecosystem and unique culture which has led to users posting images and threads relating to Australia in fashion towards Damn Nature, You Scary! and Meanwhile in X.
Some of the earliest images started popping up in 2009. The “Australia wall spider” being one of the most notable. The movie Crocodile Dundee also played a big part in bringing the life in the down-under to main stream media, touching on things like the dangers and the different lifestyle there.
