Aboriginal History
Aboriginal Family
Family has alway been of the utmost to the Aboriginal people, they live for their family with life long bonds being maintained through the forging of kinship ties as a high priority of their social being. Together with a very strong identification with the land and in fact many aboriginals came to be the carers of the land these people observed strong cultural ties. Even in the married lives they treated their choice as a most serious one indeed by observing certain taboos and social customs such as the marriage between people from within the same localised group was taboo.
The Aboriginal culture and way of life is very closely tied to their observance of and being part of the land which they are protectors of to a point where part of their culture involves the sacred meetings known as Corroborees. At these Corroborees stories that have been handed down over the ages are told by way of music, dance and singing. The stories themselves may have been the simple act of hunting a particular animal that these people have a lot of respect for or in fact the meeting of family members whom have not been together for many years, in fact all facets of life is enacted in these Corroborees.

Australian Culture
Some people have claimed that to be successful in Australia's cultural world you have to go overseas and return in triumph. (It doesn't matter if you were a complete failure overseas, you still return in triumph.) Well that might have been true once. Dame Edna had to leave Moonee Ponds and go "home" to the UK, but it's just not true any more. To participate in Australian culture you can do it right here. All you need is a Ute, a girl in a wet t-shirt and know how to burn a sausage on the barbie and you're a cultural hero and a Great Aussie Bloke.
Archtitetcher A ll Australian architecture is based on the first structure ever built here, called the "dunny". The most decorated Australian architect is Gerda Haircut . She was inspired by the pioneers' dunnies to build really big ones. Australian men, after all, spend most of their time in the dunny with "a good magazine". This in turn inspired the famous Fielman Utz to design the Sinny Oprouse . Utz was removed from the project for being too "artsy-fartsy" (and therefore probably a bit of a poof). While the building is impressive from the outside, the interior was designed by bureaucrats and as a result it has been described as looking "on the inside like a huge outback dunny". Very few accolades could be more satisfying. Strangely enough, despite this visual metaphor, there are very few actual dunnies in the building and most patrons spend the entire performance standing in queues waiting for a "seat" without a view.

Gay revelation: Cruz and Johansson kissed in a film!
Yes, we must thank that bastion of journalistic standards News Ltd’s Daily Telegraph for this and many more astonishing revelations in their online gallery , which is linked to as ‘Pics: Gay and lesbian stars’. This will likely come as quite a shock to Javier Encinas Bardem (left) and Ryan Reynolds (right), Cruz’s and Johansson’s respective husbands.
Also revealed: Madonna has kissed Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears! Sarah Michelle Gellar has kissed Selma Blair! And most shocking of all: Daniel Craig has kissed Toby Jones!!! Given that the gallery is titled ‘Gay, Lesbian star’, you can only assume they’ve done a lot of undercover reporting to rule out lezzing up . Sorry – how could I even question The Tele for a second! Must be the head-spin from all the shock.

Australian Culture
Down Under, not only is the flora and fauna unique, but also the culture and traditions of the people. Australia is a beautiful land, in a setting that words fail to describe and full of vibrant people. Australian culture is a perfect example of a 'blend' possible by the integration of old and new... Australia is lovingly referred to as the land 'down under' due to its geographical location. It is the result of the continental drift that took place millions of years ago. As an island set far south on the planet, the country is home to the most amazing flora and fauna, gorgeous Australian animals like the kangaroos and koalas and wild life and human inhabitants. It ranks amongst the most urbanized populations in the world today.
Australian culture, like that of America, is an amalgamation of different traditions brought along by the early settlers and that of the indigenous Aborigines. The influx has survived colonization and war, establishing the people as pervasive and resilient. Native Australians and the settlers readily accepted the best of Irish, English, Asian, Italian and Greek culture to ripen in a belief system that is not only intriguing, but also fascinating. There is little wonder why the nation is also sometimes referred to as the 'fattest nation!'.

Australian culture
Culture Initially the dominant way of life in Australia substantially reflected the heritage of the British settlers. Customs were modified as the settlers adapted to the new country and its exceptionally fine climate. A culture evolved that, although based on British traditions, is peculiar to Australia. Since the 1960s, the arrival of large numbers of immigrants from continental Europe and Asia has led to the development of a more multicultural society in which the Aborigines, marginalized since the arrival of Europeans, have also begun to play a larger part.

The hidden story of Australia 's missing links "You feel free in Australia. There is great relief in the atmosphere - a relief from tension, from pressure, an absence of control of will or form. The skies open above you and the areas open around you " D.H Lawrenc e- English author "I can personally affirm that to stand before an audience of beaming Australians and make even the mildest quip about a convict past is to feel the air conditioning immediately elevated." Bill Bryson - American author ".. but a special sort of Ocker. He lives out his own values, undeflected by the pretensions of the mighty. I have met plenty of Australians like that and I regard them as the best Australians. I have no doubt there are people like that everywhere and that is the secret of Hogan's universal appeal." Jim McClelland - Australian politician Welcome to Australia This is a peculiar country where the principles of culture appear to have been turned upside down. Australians seem blissfully unaware of the achievements of their intellectuals.... yet they will celebrate long dead horses, yobbo sportsmen, and bushrangers. They often forget the words of their national anthem..... yet it would be wrong to say they are not patriotic as a song about a suicidal sheep thief seems to instil them with a great deal of pride! If they like you, they will not give you compliments. Instead, they might call you names like

Friendly lot the Aussies. They’ll invite you to a barbie in their backyard,toss a shrimp on it for you...greet you with a “g’day mate” and proceed to delight you with the colorful language that comes from emerging as a nation in complete geographical isolation from the rest of the world. Of course not everyone speaks “strine” (“Australian” pronounced the Australian way). The following guide will help you, though, to understand those down under at the average informal outback gathering. One trend you might notice, when listening to Australian speech, is the use (or perhaps over use)of the long “e“ sound, which is tacked on to the end of many a word. If you are offered a tinnie, for instance, -take it, as it is a can of beer. If a mate will be back in a minnie, you can safely expect him back in sixty seconds. If the postie has delivered a pressie- then you are in luck. You have been given a present and it has arrived courtesy of your mail man. Unless he has ‘chucked a sickie” of course. (Telephoned to say he will not be at work..perhaps for no reason other than he feels like a day off or at the
