With Australia Day looming, and consequently the Australian of the Year awards, our Professionals Arbee Real Estate, Bacchus Marsh team have been chatting about the most significant Australians. It’s amazing how much diversity there is in one real estate office!
We’ve had sporting heroes, musicians, scientists, Nobel Prize winners, surgeons, artists, writers, actors, directors, media icons, entertainers, and even the odd politician on an assortment of lists.
According to Rankopedia, the top 10 Australians (as voted by the public) are:
- Heath Ledger
- Nicole Kidman
- Mel Gibson
- Kylie Minogue
- Sir Donald Bradman
- Cate Blanchett
- Paul Hogan
- Steve Irwin
- Ian Thorpe
If your list differs greatly from this, don’t worry… aside from one or two favourites, so does ours!
According to GLO Australia, the top 20 inspirational Australians of the 21st Century include Jessica Watson, Black Caviar, Cadel Evans, Dr Christopher O’Brien, Peter Hughes, Jim Stynes, Caleb Neyenhuis, Kurt Fearnley, Ben Roberts-Smith, and Nick Vujicic. While many of these names might not be as well known as those in the first list, they have all accomplished amazing things and have names well worth knowing.
With Australia Day approaching, our team at Professionals Arbee Real Estate, Bacchus Marsh would like to encourage you all to take the time to form your own list. When you really think about it, the difficulty isn’t trying t fill spaces on the list, it’s trying to stop.
