Find out more about the greatest Australian, including Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Margot Robbie, Katherine Langford and Hugh Jackman.

Australians may come across to the world as fun loving people who like to lounge on the sunny beaches all day long, but don’t be misled by the externalities. They may love to enjoy themselves, but work always comes first; otherwise Australia would not count among the wealthiest nations in the world! The nation also boasts of a high living standard and is among the world leaders in health, education and economic freedom. None of these would have been possible had it not been for the dedication and resourcefulness of Australians who have worked hard to make their country such a wonderful place to live in.
