CULTURE

Australia consists of the mainland, the Australian continent, Tasmania, and many small islands. The Australian culture is mainly derived from the UK, but it is also influenced by the distinctive geography of the Australian continent, Aboriginal culture, the Torres Strait Islands, and the people of Oceania. Approx. 30% of people living in Australia are born in foreign countries, especially immigrants from China and India. From this background, diverse cultures are mixed, but basically Australians prefer a relaxed life and value their time with their family and friends. Most major cities are located on the coast and the majority of the population is concentrated there, so the beach culture is thriving and surfing world competitions are also held.
