Yahoo's All Australian Flag


Yahoo photographs veterans of the 2/14th Battalion and 39th Battalion opening the war memorial at Isurava on the Kokoda Track. At this site in August 1942, overwhelmingly outnumbered and outgunned, a ragged bunch of Australian soldiers fought a fierce battle as part of the Kokoda Track campaign which stopped the Japanese invasion of Australia. It's a little known fact that Australians in New Guinea were the first soldiers to defeat the Japanese Army in the Second World War.

The world famous Sydney Egg-Opera House

Along with the Giant Potatoe in Idaho, the Felafel Dome in Beirut and the Spring Roll Tower in Beijing, the Sydney Egg-Opera House is one of the eight edible wonders of the modern world.

Architect Joern Utzon was aesthetically influenced by both the Australian obsession of building Big Things for no apparent reason and his own simple taste for eggs. Inspired by a breakfast of boiled eggs near the site of "the toaster"on Sydney harbour one morning, Utzon was compelled to build the next big thing for Australia. But then tragedy struck as it always does when politicians use art as a political football. In 1966 the conservative Liberal government of NSW fired the greatest architect of the 20th century, Joern Utzon and got some ratbag from the public works to finish off the building. The true vision remained but a dream until, required as the centrepiece of the Yahoo Serious motion picture Mr Accident, Joern Utzon's architectural masterpiece, the Sydney Egg-Opera House was finally finished in 2000 to his original specifications. Up to then generations of Australians and international visitors to the greatest building ever constructed could only stand and gaze upon Utzon's elegant curves imagining what magnificence their completion would mean.

"Tropfest is like your best pair of thongs. Raw, honest and your feet can beathe. We stampede in droves to Tropfest for the same reason we flocked to The Story of the Kelly Gang in 1906, or Gallipoli in 1980, or Chopper in 2000. Its hunger for the idiosyncrasies of our culture unashamedly interpreted in our own, often irreverent, film language. Tropfest is an exultant antipodean antidote to the constant deluge of Americana.
