Australia is a country that is well known for being the last land on Earth that was founded in 1788. This is a unique place with a variety of natural and urban settings and lifestyles, from the desert outback to the city of Sydney, to the wildlife in Darwin, to the sandy beaches in the Gold Coast. Australia is a great place for adventure and relaxation, and is a place you won’t forget.
Best Time To Go
The best time to visit Australia depends on where abouts in Australia you are going to as it is a vast and expansive country. The Northern areas tend to be warmer whilst the Southern areas tend to have colder winters. If you’re visiting desert areas, like Uluru, the best time to go is Autumn time in June and July as this is when temperatures start to drop to a more bearable level. For the rest of the country, September to December is a great time to visit Australia as this is their summer season so everything is in bloom and is great weather for visiting beaches and tourist attractions. Their maximum temperatures are generally between 20-30 degrees Celsius.
The Australian cuisine consists of a mix of flavours and tastes from around the world, with meat as a main component of their dishes. Some of their most popular dishes include barbeque where meat is cooked on a barbeque outside and is served with other components such as salads. They are also known to eat meats such as Kangaroo and Crocodile. One of their most popular foods is Tim Tams which are two chocolate wafers sandwich with cream filling.
History and Culture
Australia has a long history which includes being discovered by Charles Darwin in 1788 and even naming the place Darwin after himself. The colonisation by the British fleet that came over had a big effect on how we know Australia as it is today and how the aboriginals didn’t agree with it. Then finally how they recovered from loss in the war, with naming their soldiers Anzacs.
Australian’s are generally laid back and open, with their culture having lots of influence from the British and Aboriginals that lived there thousands of years before hand.
