Australians loathe Foster's lager, don't they? IIRC, there's absolutely nothing about it that's actually Australian, nor was there ever (the Aussie angle was just a marketing gimmick), and they hate it when tourists come down there expecting to order it.
My experience was that Foster's is their Budwesier. It's relatively cheap and sells a lot, but no one considers it to be "good beer". I remember drinking a lot of Victoria Bitter when I was there.

Remember, I was there a long time ago, so my experience may not be valid now.

That reminds of a joke I heard in Australia:

Q: Why is American Beer like making love in a canoe?
A: Because it's fucking close to water!
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
