4. An ice-cream which sounds like it was named after a day of the week can be found in QUEENSLAND. What is this tasty treat?

There are several theories about the origin of the word, mostly to do with the religious restrictions of eating certain foods on Sunday. Personally, I think that they taste great on ANY day of the week!

6. Which mathematical symbol is depicted as two parallel horizontal lines, one atop the other? Look at the letters of QUEENSLAND and you will find it.
