Essays on Australian Culture
Australia is known for its diverse culture, with influences from all over the world. While it has long been a country of immigrants, each one bringing their own cultural heritage, Australia also has its own unique set of customs and traditions that have evolved over time. It’s an exciting mix of cultures which makes living in Australia so vibrant and interesting. The Aboriginal people are the oldest inhabitants of Australia, having lived on the continent for more than 50 000 years before European settlement began in 1788. They had rich language, spiritual beliefs and sophisticated systems of gathering food as well as strong social structures and trade networks stretching across the entire continent. Many aspects of Indigenous culture remain strong today including art forms such as painting and storytelling.

All these different elements combine together to create a truly unique Australian Culture that continues to evolve every day.
