A Brief History of Australia
Australia’s aboriginal population first arrived around 50,000 years ago and continue to have a strong influence on Australian culture.
The British began their colonisation in 1788 and this has led to the development of Australia’s highly westernised contemporary culture.
The original British occupation of Australia as a penal colony was followed by many subsequent waves of migration, including the Australian Gold Rush of the 1850s and significantly the arrival of migrants from over 200 countries after World War II.
The Commonwealth of Australia was founded in 1901 following a series of referenda in favour of independence.
The British impact is evident in the predominance of the English language and in the continuance of the constitutional monarchy and parliamentary tradition following the British model.
However, Australia has its own culture with an increasing recognition of its proximity to Asia, a focus on outdoor activity and an independent spirit fed by its remote location from Europe and North America.
