Watch: 'Are you koala-fied?' Simon Baker quizzes Ellen on Aussie knowledge

Ellen Degeneres is making her first trip down under in March, so when Aussie cutie Simon Baker joined her on the show on Wednesday night, she got him to give her a pop-quiz on Australian culture.

The 54-year-old talk show host is married to Australian actress Portia de Rossi, so she's probably quite well versed on our shores. Not to mention that she has held a dual US/Australian citizenship since 2010, being Portia’s wife.

So after teaching Ellen how to do an impression of a kookaburra, Simon decided to quiz her knowledge of the sunburnt country led by the corniest pun ever, "Are you Koala-fied?"

It gets better. The Mentalist star quizzed Ellen with a series of multiple choice questions, from dingoes eating babies to Australian flora and fauna. Check out the video above to see her answers.

The cutest moment is when Simon asks her what the national flower of Australia is, giving the options of roses, wattles, plumeria or her wife Portia — To which Ellen replies, "In my eyes it's always Portia de Rossi". Awww.

The adorable pair will be gracing our shores around March 15, along with 400 Ellen fans.

What questions would you ask Ellen about Australia?
