If you are a big fan of Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Chris Hemsworth, and Hugh Jackman, you will know that there is one thing common in them – they are all Australians. The country is world-famous for its natural wonders and wide-open spaces, its beaches, deserts, “the bush”, and “the Outback”. What’s more surprising is it’s actually a really big country.
