The happy accident that created wi-fi. The well-placed piece of coral that saved the Endeavour from sinking. The stroke of luck that made Hugh Jackman Wolverine.

Australia may be known as 'the lucky country', but just how accurate is that description? Turns out, very. From the Gold Rush to Stephen Bradbury, our history is full of times when lady luck made a spectacular appearance. Now, Eamon Evans dives deep to deliver the most hilarious, fascinating tales of the Australians who were almost too lucky to be believed.
