    I would have to highly agree Ugg boots being the best known “Made in Australia” product. I honestly can’t think of too many other well-known Australian products – apart from Subaru, which of course is made in Japan but everyone thinks is Australian 😉

    It would be fun to find more products, especially since my girlfriend and I are planning on heading to AUS, NZ and SE Asia next year. I like learning a bit about a place before I visit 🙂

      Next to Ugg Boots, there are more australian travel gear that are worth trying out like Gondwana travel clothing as an example. Wish you a wonderful trip around Australia.:)

    I’ll have to suggest Journey Jottings Australia Map Journals for highlighting your holiday adventures!
    They’re 100\% Australian Made in Brisbane.
    Whereas most maps tell you where to go, these Map Journals help you remember where you’ve been by simply summarizing your trip on a single sheet 🙂

    The Uggs as people know them are a US brand: uggaustralia dot com There is this ongoing fight about copyrights. In Australia all people are very keen on Uggs 🙂
