Congratulations to Jeannie Henry, runner up in the AQC Challenge, with Hello Possums!!
Hello Possums!!: The Brushtail Possum, a cat sized mammal, is indigenous Australian fauna and likes to live in our iconic flora, the gumtree. “Hello Possums!!” – is a boisterous Australian made greeting popularised by our very own Aussie ambassador to the world, Dame Edna Everage.
Winner of the AQC challenge was Linden Lancaster, from Victoria, with Kangaroo and Wattle
Kangaroo and Wattle: The red kangaroo and golden wattle are famous symbols that signify the uniqueness of Australia. They both appear on the coat of arms and are part of our shared cultural history. Aboriginal Australians have utilised them in many ways for thousands of years. Tourism Australia makes use of the kangaroo in its logo to “help ensure instant recognition for Australia around the world”. The golden wattle is our national floral emblem that inspires our nation’s colours. It “has become our cherished symbol of celebration, of joy, of sadness and of remembrance and of home wherever we may be…”
