Living in Australia
With a landmass of 7,617,930 square kilometres, situated on the continent of Oceania surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans, Australia is also characterised as the oldest, driest and flattest continent with human inhabitants. It is the smallest continent, but the sixth largest country in the world, making it also the most sparsely populated continent in terms of inhabitants per square kilometre (2.8). This is however skewed by the fact that many people inhabit the most temperate part of the country along the south-east coastline where most of Australia’s major cities including the capital Canberra, Melbourne and the largest city Sydney lie. Despite having a large indigenous population, Western culture has since 1788 been the most influential in Australia, but it is said that the country’s own distinct culture has emerged. This is reflected in the art associated with impressionists such as Arthur Streeton and Tom Roberts, literature of Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson who began to write in distinctive Australian vocabulary and through the cuisine which has become known as ‘bush tucker’. The economy is strong in Australia, and the country has also been ranked for average wealth in 2013, marking it as a fairly equal nation. It was the only advanced economy to remain relatively unaffected by the financial crisis up to 2009, but the affect on other nations eventually impacted the economy. It is a major exporter of natural resources such as agricultural products, minerals and energy, but the wine industry also contributes widely to the economy.
