Famous Australian Men

The very mention of Australians might bring to your mind the image of a beer guzzling, tanned, fun loving person lounging on the picturesque beaches all day long. From the past many decades Australians, especially men, have had to live with this dumb stereotype that projects them to the world as carefree beach mongers. Ever thought about what Australia would actually be like if Australians actually fit the stereotype? Australia is one of the wealthiest nations of the world and boasts of a high standard of living unmatched by many other countries. This would not have been possible without the relentless hard word, ingenuity, and dedication of the Australian men who gave it their all to build such a wonderful nation.
