The culture of Australia is a Western culture derived primarily from Britain but also influenced by the unique geography of the Australian continent, the diverse input of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and other Oceanian people.
Australians are generally not formal, so greetings, even initial greetings, are casual and laid back. It’s common to shake hands and Australians would normally just use first names to introduce people.
While Australia has a strong tradition of secular government, religious organisations, Christianity in particular, have played a significant role in public life.
Our partner surf house provides free internet WiFi throughout the accommodation.
