About the Show

Elaine Crombie hosts Stuff Everyone Should Know About Australia - a 10 play NAIDOC Week 2021 documentary web series that’s all about busting myths and celebrating truths about First Nations history and culture.

Let’s be real, when it comes to Australia’s First Nations people, there's a lot of misinformation out there. And a whole lot of stuff that's never been taught.

This series aims to rectify that by taking a look at some fascinating facts all Australians should be proud of.

Short and sweet, fun and educational – Stuff Every Should Know About Australia is a collaboration between 10 play and First Nations creatives who are passionate about learning amazing truths and sharing them with the rest of the nation.
