Culture

Australians are generally laid-back, open and direct. They say what they mean and are generally more individual and outgoing than many other cultures. Men and women are treated equally in Australia. Women make up nearly 50% of the workforce and most women remain in the workplace after they marry, and many after they’ve had children. Women are also free to breastfeed in public. People in Australia generally don't have servants, and men and women equally share the cooking and domestic duties in the home.

Landforms

Australia is a land of geological contradictions with some of the oldest features in the world alongside rocks which are in the process of formation. The continent is home to rocks dating from more than 3000 million years while others are the result of volcanic activity which continued up to only a few thousand years ago.
