Travel through Time in Australia

Following the Second World War millions of immigrants arrived in Australia, mainly from Britain and Ireland but also from Greece, Italy, Germany, Yugoslavia and Holland, along with refugees from Spain, Portugal, Poland and Russia.  Australia believed that they had narrowly avoided Japanese invasion and needed ‘populate or perish’, so immigrants were actively sourced and many helped to find work.

That’s why Australia is one of the most multicultural societies in the world, where over 200 languages are spoken! There are diverse religious and cultural activities and huge (fabulous) variety in foods, restaurants, fashion and architecture. 

Each of the capital cities is a reflection of the multi-cultural mix, ancestry, landscape and climate.  The vibrant Asian and Aboriginal influences characterize tropical Darwin, and you’ll see convict-built buildings in Hobart.  Melbourne is home to a rich fashion, food and sports culture and Sydney is cutting edge.  You’ll find Brisbane is laidback, Adelaide is elegant and Perth is a scenic city where there is an abundance of water sports.

While there is no official religion in Australia, around 64% identify as Christian, 30% do not identify with any religion, and the remaining are Islamic, Buddhist and others.
