Typed 'Irwin' a million times before actually reading past the word 'Crocodile'.

I really think Bradman's clue should simply read 99.94 :)

I didn't know a lot of these - thank you for the education. But where were these? Steve Irwin, Nicole Kidman, Jamie Oliver, Curtis Stone, Greg Norman, Margaret Court, Rupert Murdoch, The Man from Snowy River and Waltzing Matilda (Banjo Paterson.)

What can I say Ander, there are a lot famous Aussies out there. But, Murdoch is American now and we're happy to be rid of him, thanks very much, and Waltzing Matilda isn't a person (though Banjo obviously was, but no one outside of Australia would know of him). Also, Jamie Oliver is very British, not Australian. Thanks for taking the quiz and commenting.

A dessert is probably the best thing you would want to have named after you! ^_^
