Stories, facts and myths that could only happen in Australia.
The first time the Union Jack was flown in Australia, it was flown upside down, and in order to fire a 6 gun salute to it, they had to borrow gunpowder from the French because the English forgot to bring their own.
Australia's most memorable train heist was the Great Ghan Robbery, which happened in May of 1935 on the Ghan train, in the outback of South Australia. Back in the 1930s they didn't use armoured cars or security guards to transport money between banks - they just stuffed an envelope full of gold bullion, scribbled 'Bank of NSW' on the front and took it down to the local railway station.
