Australia Tourism


Introduction
Australia Tourism Most people conception of Australia goes little beyond appreciating its Opera house , blood - red Uluru (Ayers Rock), the Great Barrier Reef or the land of Kangaroos and Koala. Although it's true that the majority of travellers are attracted by these opportunities to explore Australia wilderness areas, natural wonders and low-key rural charm yet there is a lot more that is offered for the travellers in Australia.

Australia offers a huge range of travel experiences that ranges from the blue mountains, the Tasmanian wilderness ,the cosmopolitan culture of Sydney, pristine beaches of Perth and how can one forget the Golden City , Kalgoorlie in Western Australia it is not only Australia's largest producer of gold but has the world's largest political electorate .

Canberra with a population of nearly 300 000 is Australia's capital and only major inland city. Australia is a land of the unexpected due to its vast size, amazing natural wealth, awesome scenery and exotic plant and animal life. Remember this, after all, is Australia, 'The land of no Worries'.

Geography
Australia - The Land Down Under, World's smallest continent, sixth-largest country and the land full of contrast - vast, boundless and diverse. Located between the 110 and 155 degrees of longitude, about ten degrees south of the equator. Australia consists of two land masses: mainland Australia and Tasmania. It lies in the Southern Hemisphere and Australia's nearest neighbour is Papua New Guinea and 1920km west of New Zealand.

Its landscape ranges from desert and bushland in the central areas to rain forest in the North, to snowfields in the South East.Coastal areas are greener and much wetter. Many of the animals are unique and can not be found anywhere else in the world.

History
Overcrowded prisons in England and disruption caused by the American Revolution were two key reasons for the first shipment of convicts to the great southern land. It was the explorer and botanist Joseph Banks who, in 1779, suggested that New South Wales would be a fine site for a penal colony!

For more than 50,000 thousand years, Australia's Aboriginal people have lived and thrived in Australia's unique and challenging natural environment. Australia's rich vegetation and native wildlife helped them establish their presence on the land. Today it is believed that the Aboriginals are the world's oldest civilisation.

This experience set in a land that for a hundred years remained at the ends of the world's transportation and communication lines bred a special frontier spirit and independent attitude. It persists today in every Aussie, who would "never let a mate down."

Multicultural Society :
Australia is a multicultural society, predominately based on western origins. A large variety of ethnic groups exist in Australia. In fact, it is possible to find children who are fifth generation Jewish, fourth generation Chinese, and third generation Greek who continue to preserve aspects of their heritage.This cultural pluralism transpired as a result of immigration over several hundreds of years.

It is important not to make assumptions about the cultural uniformity of children born in Australia to Australian parents and not to except them to have the same cultural patterns as the Anglo-Australians. Ethnic groups in Australia have every right to be regarded as proper Australians. The most distinct ethnic group in Australia is the Aboriginal-Australians.

Getting There :
Virtually all visitors to Australia arrive by air. The main international airports are Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, followed by Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, Darwin and Cairns. There are plenty of connections to Asia, Europe and the USA but Australia's remoteness makes flights relatively expensive and long. Many flights are heavily booked, so make plans well in advance.
