WATCH: The most Aussie thing you’ve seen all week
IS THERE anything more Aussie than flies at a barbecue? What about flies on the good old Hills Hoist?
In North Queensland, we are used to the drone-like hum of a hoard of flies buzzing around the backyard.
They are well-known to be pesky uninvited guests at any summer gathering, but here in Mackay they have made their mark known in a peculiar way.
In a yard in Shoal Point, a resident caught this crazy moment on camera showing hundreds of flies balancing on the backyard clothes line.
The conga-line of black wings can be seen perched on the line, with more squeezing in every second ... we can't help but think of Pixar's Birds On a Wire video.
This many insects in one spot, it's enough to make anyone turn green.
Have you had an uninvited family of flies move into your home recently?
