Didgeridoo you know what day it is?

If this aerial view of the Great Barrier Reef is a reminder that you ❤ everything Australia, today's your day. Australia Day commemorates January 26, 1788, when the first transplants from England said g'day to Australian shores, but you can just call it a day to celebrate all things Aussie. From the Barrier Reef to the rugged bush to the dry Outback, we invite you to join the diverse people of Oz in celebrating their island nation (well, we can almost join the Aussies—it's tomorrow for them already, so they celebrated yesterday).

Meanwhile, we presume you find yourself stuck in a Northern Hemisphere winter—so why not scroll Down Under and try our Australia Day quiz?

你知道今天是什么日子吗?

如果这张大堡礁鸟瞰图提醒你❤ 澳大利亚的一切,今天是你的日子。澳大利亚日是为了纪念1788年1月26日,当时第一批从英国移植过来的人在澳大利亚的海岸上称为“国庆日”,但你可以称之为庆祝澳大利亚一切的日子。从大堡礁到崎岖的灌木丛,再到干旱的内陆,我们邀请你加入奥兹的不同民族庆祝他们的国(好吧,我们几乎可以加入澳大利亚人的行列,他们已经是明天了,所以他们昨天庆祝了)。

同时,我们假设你发现自己被困在北半球的冬天,那么为什么不向下滚动,试试我们的澳大利亚日测验呢?
