Whats your favourite Aussie film
If someone asked me to think of a country that I would associate with the movies, I don't think Australia would be the first place to come into my head.

But some fine actors have hailed from down under and indeed some decent films.

LoveFilm has just done a survey to find out what the favourites are, with The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert coming out top.

Tourism bosses in the country have now taken the opportunity to promote the outback of the Northern Territory - which was showcased in the movie.

And why not? Australia is an exciting destination for backpacker travel in particular and the association with the movies could well prompt people to book into hostels and have a look for themselves.

If you do take a trip down under and find yourself in the Alice Springs direction next month, be sure to check out the Camel Cup (camel racing!) on July 11th.

Oh and for those of you who are interested, my favourite Aussie film - Crocodile Dundee - was third behind Muriel's Wedding.
