Blessed with low crime, a democratic and fair government, and high standard of living, the country is the envy of many. An environment rich in languages, cultures, and religion make it an interesting and vibrant culture to be a part of. Australians are family-oriented and love the outdoors. They also love to travel, making the culture much more open-minded than in the past. Aussies are highly social, and the food and wine culture is growing rapidly. Migrant social participation is high, and newcomers to the country are encouraged to stand up and be an Australian...enjoying everything that comes with that privilege!
