Educating Bob game quiz
"My new neighbour Bob has an accent and while I can't pick where he's from, I know it's not Australia. Since I'm the neighbourly type, I decide to educate him on all things Australian."

15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit  

1. For Bob's lesson in Australiana, I ask him if he knows what sort of animal was a mascot at the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane, is featured on the Australian sporting flag, and can be found on the Australian Coat of Arms.
    Drop bear

2. Bob remembers his Mum watching an Australian television show in the '80s and how excited she was when Charlene and Scott married in 1987. Which Australian soap attracted almost 20 million UK viewers for this episode alone?
    Home and Away
    The Box
    Number 96

3. Being a patriotic Aussie, I want to introduce Bob to a sporting delight that is uniquely Australian. Which sport am I describing to him if I use the terms "ruck", "drop punt", "behind" and "ball up"?
    Australian Rules football
    Two Up
    Bodyline bowling
    Drop bear chucking

4. It's time for a snack and I've brought over some Aussie delicacies. Which one of these dishes is not Australian and therefore is not on our afternoon tea menu?

5. Since Bob is carrying on about six packs, it's time to wet the whistle with an Aussie beverage. Which beer, brewed in Brisbane since 1924 and popular in Queensland, was named for a medieval rating system and boasts a boater-wearing cartoon man as its mascot?
    Brisbane Bitter

6. Someone told me that Bob likes war movies so I've brought along an Aussie movie from my collection. It's actually a romance with the war as the backdrop, but he doesn't need to know that. Which 2008 film stars Nicole Kidman as an English aristocrat and Hugh Jackman as an Aussie drover?
    Breaker Morant
    Gettin' Square
    The Shiralee

7. Bob wants to know about the Aussie beaches and remembers seeing one on television. I think he's talking about a reality show that first aired in 2006, but he's actually talking about the 2000 Olympic Games' beach volleyball competition. Which famous Australian beach is also home to Mermaid Rock?
    Surfers Paradise
    Dee Why

8. While dropping names of famous Australians, Bob mentions seeing a woman on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" one night. At least he thinks it was a woman. He couldn't see past the purple hair, cats-eye glasses and gladioli. And that voice! Which Aussie alter-ego is as famous for her satirisation of class and snobbery as she is for her trademark greeting of "Hello Possums!"?
    Dame Edna Everage
    Kylie Minogue
    Mary Donaldson
    Mitzi Del Bra

9. Bob seems like the sporty type and so maybe he is interested in the "Sport of Kings". I turn on the television just in time to watch a spectacle that's as famous for its off field antics and fashion as it is for the sport itself. Which November sporting event is known as the "race that stops the nation"?
    Melbourne Cup
    Henley-on-Todd Regatta
    Sydney to Hobart yacht race
    Birdsville races

10. Bob decides he would like to listen to some music, so I bring out some tunes from Aussie bands. One rock band from the halcyonic days of the '70s featured a gravelly voiced singer and a guitar-playing schoolboy. Which band was this that had school children parodying one of their hits and singing about sausage rolls and shops?
    Mental As Anything
