Australia & New zealand culture training

  1. 1. Culture – Australia and New Zealand
  2. 2. .
  3. 3. Geography • Australia is situated south of Asia, between the Pacific and the Indian Oceans. Australia is a continent, a country and an island at the same time. Australia is located in the southern hemisphere • The geography of the country is extremely diverse, ranging from the snow-capped mountains of the Australian Alps and Tasmania to large deserts, tropical and temperate forests • Neighboring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and the French dependency of New Caledonia to the east, and New Zealand to the southeast
  4. 4. States and territories of Australia • Australia consists of six states, two major mainland territories, and other minor territories. • The states are New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia. • The two major mainland territories are the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory. • Western Australia is the largest state covering just under one third of the Australian landmass, followed by Queensland and New South Wales.
  5. 5. Australia's coat of arms – the official emblem of the Australian Government – was granted by George V in 1912. The arms consist of a shield containing the badges of the six states. The supporters are native Australian fauna – a kangaroo and an emu. A yellow-flowered native plant, wattle, also appears in the design. The small Union Jack represents the historical link with Britain, the large seven-pointed star represents the six States and Territories, and the small stars from the Southern Cross – a prominent feature of the southern hemisphere night sky. Flag
  6. 6. Weather and the seasons • Like all countries in the southern hemisphere (the hemisphere south of the Equator), Australia's seasons follow the sequence: ▫ Summer: December to February ▫ Autumn: March to May ▫ Winter: June to August ▫ Spring: September to November • Australia is generally a very dry place, so summers can get much hotter. The pattern of rainfall is also distinct - some places have abundant rain at one time of the year and almost none at other times.
  7. 7. People • The current Australian population is estimated at 23,679,000 (22 July 2013). • This does not include an estimated 1 million Australians living overseas, but it includes the estimated 24% of Australians born overseas (in various nations, but predominantly the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Italy, China, Vietnam, India, the Philippines, and Greece).
  8. 8. The Aborigines are the Australian natives that have been living there for thousands of years before the first Europeans came to Australia in the 1700s.
  9. 9. Food •Australian cuisine has been derived from the tastes of immigrant settlers to Australia and the produce they have introduced to the continent. •Subsequent waves of multicultural immigration, with a majority drawn from Asia and the Mediterranean region, and the strong, sophisticated food cultures these ethnic communities have brought with them influenced the development of Australian cuisine •Fresh produce is readily available and thus used extensively, and the trend (urged by long-term government health initiatives) is towards low-salt, low- fat healthy cookery incorporating lean meat and lightly cooked, colourful, steamed or stir-fried vegetables •With most of the Australian population residing in coastal areas, fish and seafood is popular
  10. 10. Sports • Many Australians are passionate about sport, and it forms a major part of the country's culture in terms of watching and participation • Sports that are popular include cricket, horseracing, American rules football and rugby • The country has a large number of national teams in sports such as cricket, rugby union, rugby league, basketball, hockey, netball, soccer, softball, water polo and wheelchair rugby • Sport is played by different populations in Australia including women, people with disabilities
