Australia's best April Fool's pranks revealed – so which would you fall for?

The most skeptical day of the year has arrived again with Australians across the country tricking one another with outlandish and implausible pranks.

Daily Mail Australia looked at the best and worst pranks celebrated on the day, from the most believed to the most ridiculous and everything in between. 

Australia's love for April Fool's pranks can be traced to 1978 when a barge appearing to tow a giant iceberg in Sydney Harbour led Sydneysiders to believe it had travelled all the way from Antarctica.

Electronics businessman Dick Smith organised the elaborate prank, saying he would moor the iceberg near the Sydney Opera House and sell the public small cubes, or 'Dicksicles', of the iceberg for ten cents each. 

Smith named the fake iceberg 'Dickenberg': a barge he had transformed with plastic sheets, cans of shaving cream, and fire-fighting foam. The hoax was revealed when rain washed away the foam, revealing the barge beneath. 

The Chocolate Whopper 

Hungry Jacks tried to set our taste buds into a frenzy with the launch of their anticipated Chocolate Whopper.

The uniquely flavoured burger was said to be made entirely from chocolate and candied ingredients, featuring a chocolate cake bun, a flame-grilled chocolate patty and vanilla frosting. 

Disappointingly, the burger was nothing more than a whopping lie and an elaborate hoax.

50 Shades of Wax

Madame Tussauds revealed it would be opening a risqué, adult-only room featuring famous wax figures without their clothes on.

The after-hours experience was billed as 50 Shades of Wax and was made as a result of suggestive questions from guests, Studios and Operations Manager Dan Porter said. 

'We lose count of how many people ask us if the wax figures are made to scale and if all the measurements were correct.

'We thought it was time to remove the mystery by showcasing exactly what the celebrities look like for our inquisitive guests,' Mr Porter said. 

The famous wax figures were set to be switched each week to ensure curious guests had ample opportunities to see their favourite celebrities in all their glory.

Rise & Sizzle Bacon Alarm Clock

Travelodge launched a bacon-scented anti-snooze service for sleepy guests needing a wake-up call at airport hotels. The pleasant 'Whiff & Wake Service' promised to wake guests with the motivating sizzling smell of frying bacon.

The hotel chain said the unique bacon-scented alarm would stop guests hitting snooze and missing flights.  

Guests were told they could programme the clock with the time they wanted to wake up and the smell of bacon would automatically be released, gently wafting over the guests to rouse them from sleep.
