Culture

Australian culture is founded on stories of battlers, bushrangers and brave soldiers. Of sporting heroes, working heroes and plucky migrants. Today Australia is also defines itself by its Aboriginal heritage, vibrant mix of cultures, innovative ideas and a thriving arts scene. Australians believe in mat ship and a ‘fair go’ and have a strong affection for the underdog of ‘battler’. Australia’s most famous bushranger Ned Kelly protested against the poverty and injustice of a British class system shipped here along with the convicts. This flawed hero’s fight for ‘justice and liberty’ and ‘innocent people’ has been embraced as part of the national culture.  It’s no secret that Australians are sports mad. With more then 120 national and thousands of local, regional and state sporting organizations. The number one watched sport is Australian Rules Football with its high kicks and balletic leaps. On the other side the brute force and tackling tactics have National Rugby League. Australia is a nation of swimmers and Olympic medal attests to their performance in the pool. In summer they watch Australian cricket team or tennis Australian open. Football is a growth sport, they draw world-class surfers from the Bells Beach Surf Classic and on Boxing Day crowds gather to watch the boats sail out of Sydney Harbour to Hobart Yacht Race. In Melbourne is situated famous horse race – the Melbourne Cup an Formula One Grand Prix.
