Australia Day Lamb: Operation Boomerang

Top 6: January 13th 2016
This year, the highly anticipated Australia Day lamb campaign created by The Monkeys, Sydney sees Lambassador Sam Kekovich joined by legendary newsreader Lee Lin Chin and a host of Australian icons for 'Operation Boomerang'. Their mission: to save Australians abroad from going without a lamb barbecue on Australia Day.

Operation Boomerang was the brainchild of commander Lee Lin Chin. Having spent Australia Day 1996 in Warsaw, without 'a chargrilled chop in sight', she vowed to 'never let that happen to another Australian again'.

Cut to present day, when Chin's army, including Sam Kekovich and Fitzy & Wippa, commences its calling to save as many overseas Aussies as possible. Other notable Aussies such as rugby player Stephen Moore, acclaimed cricketer Mitchell Johnson and someone who may or may not be Princess Mary feature throughout the content. As the troops land back on home soil, they're met with a message from the 'Prime Minister' and a delicious lamb barbecue, manned by chef George Calomobaris. Because after all, you never lamb alone on Australia Day.
