The present Australian culture is a mixture from various sources of the past, including the indigenous Australians, United Kingdom, and the diversity of people who flocked in during the 1850's Australian gold rush, plus the refugees from Britain and Europe during the post-World War II .
Historically, Australian culture has been a masculine one, forged on the adversity of early colonists and afterward the valor of Australian soldiers. Today's conventional Australia culture is greatly influenced by British, European, and American culture, partly due to cultural cringe. However, there are also some distinguishing influences from the Australian natural atmosphere, its history, its propinquity to Asia, and the aboriginal Australians.
Cities of Australia are mixtures of various cultures, and its demographics portray one of the most developed and culturally diverse people in the globe. The mainstream of Australians resides on the coast with the outback being lightly inhabited, and the influence of the longer recognized southern European society has been encompassing.
Modern Australia culture is a vibrant embroidery that has laced together threads from all the corners of the world, from the dragons and sparklers of Chinese New Year, to the flora and gongs of Laotian Buddhist celebrations, it has embraced multi-cultural celebrations that have become a part of Australia culture as much as Christmas and cricket has been a part of their way of life.
The range has also ensured Australia of getting the best of what the world has to offer when it comes to theater and visual arts. Australia culture is a core of creative expression, from operas, orchestras, ultramodern theater, and Shakespearean classics, to rock concerts, dance, comedy, Aboriginal art, cabaret, and world-touring shows.
Australians are also festival fans, and they are always glad to take part in typical and extreme arts festivals or get a kick at country folk festivals. Visiting a cane toad race or a competition of 'brick throwing' reflects another amusement side of Australians that may be dry for some. Capital cities of Australia also hold grand yearly festivals; every February, Sydney celebrates the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras that attracts more than six-hundred thousand international crowd, and lasts for a whole month. Another huge festival is the Adelaide International Festival held every March.
The Australians care for life is illustrated in its culture, whether being grateful for the arts or discovering the magnificent outdoors, time off is an essential part of true Australian life. Australian culture is set apart with its multiplicity and diversity, making it a truly vibrant one.
