Welcome to Australian Culture and Customs.  Whether you are a foreign student at an Australian university or a teacher of Australian English in a high school, a 457 visa skilled worker employed on a mine or in a corporation, coming to live in Australia, have just arrived here, or are simply curious about Australia and the way we do things here, this contemporary Australian culture and customs site is the place to come.

You will not find kangaroos bouncing across the page, tips on how to eat Vegemite (which you will never eat anyway) or outdated slang here. What you will find is:

  • up to do date information on how Australian culture works – what to do and what not to do
  • resources for further information and study
  • Australian customs for particular occasions and events
  • information about how to get involved in Australian society and become more comfortable here
  • links to reputable Australian news sources, services and government agencies
  • news about Australia from other countries’ perspectives
  • news from Australia about what’s been happening in other countries that affects Australia or Australians.

How can we help you?  Leave your details if you would like our consultancy to contact you about Australian cultural competency in Australia. Or just leave a comment or content suggestion.
