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.

A major player in the world economy, Australia’s contributions to the world in the fields of science and technology, literature, politics, and sports have been immense. The nation has given birth to several Nobel laureates like Howard Florey, Patrick White and Barry Marshall who have enriched the world in no small way. In fact, Australia has produced a remarkable number of Nobel laureates given her small population. When we talk of Australia, how can we forget cricket—and the Australians who have ruled the game? Read on to discover more about famous Australians.
