CULTURE OF AUSTRALIA
The culture of Australia is essentially a Western Culture influenced by the unique geography of the Australian Continent, the diverse input of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islinders and other Oceanian people, the British Colonizations of Australia that began in 1788, and the various waves of multi-ethnic migration that followed.
HOLIDAYS AND FESTIVALS
Festivals have become ubiquitous in Australia, with hundreds held each year. Some are as small as the community-based Apollo Bay Music Festival and Thirroul Seaside and Arts Festival, while others, such as the Falls Festival and Woodford Folk Festival, are able to bring international performers to Australian audiences and showcase Australian works.
