I did a few.

One for adults I concentrated on famous landmarks and history - lots of slides of uluru, cave paintings etc.

One for school kids I did a "True/False" game - made a statement about Australia and if they thought it was true they put hands on heads, false they put hands on tails. If they were right they stayed standing; wrong they sat down. Last kid standing got a prize [Aussie flag, stickpin, money and chocolate].

One for kids going to Australia I did Aussie English compared to British and American [funny ones like 'thong' as well as things like 'dummy' versus 'pacifier'.

Pity you're not Australian - you could've just had them!

I think wicket died earlier this year; she was gettin' up there. Worth a try, though; maybe you can get a hold her descendents.
