Australian Identity

  1. Reflect on your understanding of Australian culture. Australian culture is easy going, Australians have a happy-go-lucky attitude to life, warm to others, friendly and we give everyone a go.
  2. Demonstrate your own, individual understanding of culture in Australia over the past 5 years. In the past 5 years, we have grown as a country to become the 'underdogs'. We are a wealthy country, we have freedom, we are fortunate, have the space to do what we want and most of all welcoming to others.
  3. Where do you get these ideas about Australian culture? What influences your understanding? I get these ideas about Australian culture by looking at the society I live in. For example, when someone new comes to the community, everyone goes out of there way to make them feel comfortable and welcome. This then gives us the stereotype of being friendly, welcoming and loving.
