We Rounded Up The Biggest Aussie Pop Culture Moments Of 2018

Congrats on nearly making it to the end of 2018. And what a year it has been, fam!

It’s kinda hard to remember everything that’s happened this year because, well, there’s been A LOT.

Remember the premiere of Australia’s own Love Island? Lord, me neither, but it happened.

And now it’s been enough time we can finally look back at Honey Badger’s season of The Bachelor and wearily say, “we survived that.” We did it! Pat on the back to all of us.

Without further ado, here’s a refresher on what happened in the Aussie entertainment world this year.

1. Kendrick took out the top spot ahead of Gang of Youths on the Triple J Hottest 100

Honestly, I’m still recovering from anything to do with Dean and Davina.

3. Shannon Noll was robbed once again

Noll placed second on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, 15 years after he placed second on Australian Idol.

4. 5SOS dominated the charts with ‘Youngblood’

7. Grant and Tayla won Love Island, but their love didn’t last

Shocking. Grant having a girl on the outside may have played a part in this, but Tayla has now happily moved on with Dom.

8. Shane Gould nabbed the top spot in Survivor
