G’Day Mates

Australia National Day - Maldives

Happy Australia Day, mates! There seems to be a rash of “National Days” in the Indian Ocean this particular week (India National Day is also today). So, a chance to celebrate the Australians who have flocked to the Maldives. You would think that Australia would have enough sunshine, but even the Diggers dig this paradise.

Australia is especially prominent country in the #Maldives digiverse. While it ranks only 14th in terms of visitor numbers, but when it comes to the Maldives Complete social media database (models, athletes, celebrities, bloggers), it’s chockers with Wallabies coming in 4th (behind Russia, UK and US). What’s not surprising is that the Aussie-pedigreed resort, Amilla Fushi, is the most popular down under – 3 of the highest 7 ranked Australian digi-personalities visited there.  Mind you, the two countries do share a fair bit in common – extreme island nations (one the world’s largest and the other the world’s smallest islands), big surf culture (3 of those featured are surfers), and the biggest coral reef system in the world.  Not to mention the ubiquitous sunshine and effervescent demeanour of the people.

May your national day be as ripper as the togs you snap.
