148-Australian Bush Legends and Myths

Show notes

Australia like most countries, has a series of legends and myths that form part of our cultural identity. While some of these are based on fact, and others have at least some basis of truth, there are a number that are just downright fabrications. Whatever degree of truth is involved is doesn’t stop us from talking about them and where possible, having fun at the expense of gullible people, mainly overseas tourists  The following myths and legends are Australia’s best known although I’m sure there will be some that you may never have heard of.
