Australian Rules football, also known as Aussie Rules, is one of Australia’s most beloved sports. Born in the backyard of Australia, it is the only major sport to be invented in Australia. The governing body and national league of Aussie Rules is called the AFL. The league was founded as the Victorian Football League (VFL), but rebranded as the AFL in 1990 to reflect the growing number of non-Victorian based clubs joining the competition. Every year a total of the best 22 players from all teams in the AFL are strategically picked to make up the All-Australian team.
This FACT indicates the number of All-Australians since 1991 by the state and territory they were born in.
*If a player’s birthplace could not be identified, their state of origin (state where their junior career started) has been assumed as their birthplace.
*Players born overseas have not been included in this FACT.

This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Italian at home, per 100,000 persons, in Australian capital cities. Italians have a rich presence in Australia, with a large number of people identifying as Italian, or as being of Italian decent. Italian migration intensified following the Second World War, when Australia relaxed its migration policies in order to increase population numbers. Since then, Italian migration, alongside migration from other nations, has played an important role in forging the modern Australian identity.
Results from the 2016 Census show that the city with the highest proportion of Italian speakers is Melbourne, at 2,271 per 100,000 persons, followed closely by Adelaide at 2,130. The city with the lowest number is Hobart at 326 Italian speakers per 100,000 persons.
Australian wines are world renowned and increasingly sought after in the international wine market. This FACT indicates the state with the highest number of high quality wines, according to Langton's 2018 rankings.
Langtons is an independent industry body which ranks Australian wines according to the following classifications: Exceptional, Outstanding, Excellent and Distinguished.
The body defines 'exceptional wines' as the most highly sought-after and prized Australian wines on the market. Outstanding wines are benchmark quality wines with a very strong market following. Excellent wines are high-performing wines of exquisite quality, achieving slightly lower values and market interest.
The quality of the wine in each state is derived by counting the high quality wines (exceptional, outstanding and excellent) and grouping them relative to their state origin. The state with the highest number of quality wines is South Australia with 79. The state with the lowest is tied between Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory with 0.
