Australia Trivia – People, Places, Media, History & Current Events in Australia
Trivia questions can be asked about any topic under the sun, but great trivia questions are written with a specific audience in mind. Our quiz audiences (see map) are mostly in the eastern states of Australia.
So Australia trivia questions, Australian current events and history, and Awards for achievement in all fields, feature in a large percentage of our Australian trivia quizzes.
The people who come to our pub quiz nights live here in Australia and lived its history. They watch news about current events, the greater percentage of which took place in Australia. They want to know about Australian people and interests.
Australian Sports Trivia
Australians follow the achievements of Australian Sportsmen and women in their preferred Sports. Especially so, when the competitions are World events. We identify with and follow our “Aussies” and wish them to do well. Australian sports trivia is a very popular topic as different Sports competitions run all year long. Many Australian Sports people are inducted in various Sporting Halls of Fame.
A true Sports fan is also interested in outstanding Sports persons from all countries, and much of our migrant community will be very interested in Sports persons from their native countries. Everyone however, even non-sports fans, are aware of what our Aussie Sports personalities are up to, from daily conversations with family, friends, and work mates who have been watching TV news reports.
