Aussie-Made Luxury: What Prizes in Lottery Can Buy
The June 20th Superdraw made 22 winners $1 million dollars richer with its $22 million AUD payout. And while they were the biggest winners, they certainly weren't the only ones. Some lucky players got to take home thousands in the Division prizes. So, we came up with a list of some of the most outrageously expensive things in Australia someone who's come into a sudden load of cash can splurge on!
The Most Expensive Beer - $1,850 AUD
Bottom's up to Nail Brewery of Perth for coming up with the world's most expensive ale! Made by owner John Stallwood, the limited edition beer - which was brewed using melted Antarctic ice actually flown in from the Antarctic - sold for $1,850 AUD on Bondi Beach. Prior to that, Stallwood had sold one of the bottles for $800 AUD at an auction for charity.
The Most Expensive Burger - $2,000 AUD
Love your meat? Then you'll love the Glamburger from West Australian chef Chris Large. Priced at an astounding $2,015 AUD, the Glamburger currently holds the crown for the world's most expensive burger. And with trimmings that include caviar, wagyu beef, lobster, brie, truffle and gold leaf, it's no surprise that Chris' restaurant, Honky Tonk, in Chelsea, London has shot to the spotlight.
