History of the country
History, boring? No way. The history of Australia refers to the records of the vicinity and people of the Commonwealth of Australia and its preceding Indigenous and colonial societies. The Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders are believed to have first arrived on the Australian mainland by sea from Maritime Southeast Asia between 40,000 and 70,000 years ago.
Then the early colonial period covers Australia’s history from the arrival in 1788 of the First Fleet of British ships in Sydney. The official national day of Australia is known as the “Australia Day“. Celebrated every year on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the elevating of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove via Governor “Arthur Phillip”.
The Portuguese, the Spanish, the Dutch explored Australia before but the British government determined on settling New South Wales in 1786, and colonization began early in 1788. Economic improvement by using Europeans had as its vital supplement the ravaging of Aboriginal existence. Some tension continually threatened as the two groups met, but, frequently Aboriginal people were accommodating and responsive.
But Europeans asked for more land and Aboriginals answered with Guerrilla Warfare, fought by irregulars in fast-moving, small-scale actions and a lot of people died as a consequence. Between 1860 and 1900 the colonies had a little formal relationship with each other; rather they focused their interest inward on their capitals, later democracy was in large part set up, overall the economy prospered, with the European population growing.
Was it boring? Are you still awake?
Traditions of the country
Are there some traditions only Australian can understand? Australia has a lot of British heritage and multiculturalism and, therefore their traditions are adopted from far and wide; however, there are a few customs and rituals that are purely Australian.
In December, there is the Boxing Day Test match. It is a cricket Test match held in Melbourne concerning the Australian cricket team and an opposing national team that is traveling Australia for the duration of summer. Mostly, the Aussie’s watch it on TV and fall asleep. Something which is funnier and hilarious is the pranks usually carried out at the end of the senior school year as a going away mark on the school, and in few cases have become something of a tradition. Often they finish more serious than originally intended. This is called Muck-up day in Australia.
Another Highlight is the Melbourne Cup, the annual horse race, and is known locally as “the race that stops the nation”. And what is a Maccas run? An evening out continually ends with a late-night time ride to Maccas (McDonald’s) or a stop at a greasy kebab shop or sketchy-looking van. This post-party snack ritual is named Maccas run.
Ask Australian for more information about traditions and fun parties’ rituals. I have some contacts if you need and they might still know me, after all, we did together in Perth when I studied there.
Hot as a fire? One would say in Australia it is only dry and hot, but there is a wide variety of weather conditions. It can be both extremely hot and dry or very cool. The weather also depends on the region. In the south, the climate is moderate with cool, wet winters (even snowy) and hot, dry summers. In the north, the climate is tropical with dry and wet seasons.
In Australia, spring is from September to November, summer from December to February, autumn from March to May. Australia’s seasons are at opposite times to those in the northern hemisphere: the three coldest months are June, July, and August, this month are named winter in Australia.
The year 2019 changed into the most up to date on report for Australia with the temperature accomplishing 1.53 ranges Celsius above the long-time period average, turning in crippling drought, temperature statistics, heatwaves, and devastating bushfires. It is known as the Black Summer which began with several serious uncontrolled fires in June 2019. By 7th January 2020, the smoke had moved about 11,000 kilometers throughout the South Pacific Ocean to Chile and Argentina. It is further than any kangaroo can jump.
What we have to explore there as a traveler
Australia is held up as having one of the last pristine and truly wild landscapes on earth but sadly a lot of the ecosystems are already compromised or have become incredibly vulnerable as a result of human activities. Around a hundred species of Australian animals face extinction and 1500 land-primarily based species are considered to be threatened.
But nevertheless, Australian’s nature is breath-taking. You can walk and experience stunning views, beaches, parks, cliffs, bays, and rock pools. The parks and beaches provide a place to relax, swim, or an opportunity to eat at one of the hotels, cafes, restaurants or takeaways. A lot of beaches provide electric barbecues, picnic shelters, play areas, kiosks, bathrooms, and change-rooms.
A very fantastic coastal town is Noosa, there and in a lot of other places you can rent a bike, a scooter or a camper van to get around. Explore the Seven Apostles or Fraser Island by airplane or seaplanes. Whitehaven Beach is a 7 km stretch along Whitsunday Island and is one of the whitest sand beaches I have ever seen, white like cocaine. The recent Global Drug Survey 2018 has discovered cocaine customers in Australia had been on common paying $309.94 for a gram of cocaine.
Five must-visit places in Australia
2011 I did something crazy, I shaved my long hair to win a prize in a competition. And I won a return flight ticket and 1 month of English lessons, such as surf lessons. I stayed 1 month longer to travel by campervan. If you want to see a picture of me with a 3 mm shaved skull, contact me on Facebook Page unexpected.me.
Sydney: Canberra is the capital city of Australia and not Sydney. The Royal Botanic Garden is a 30 hectare themed garden and amazing to spend some time to walk or run. To soak up some sun, you can enjoy Bondi Beach where you will also see some surfers or lonely sharks. Haha. Panoramic views you can get from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Of course, the Opera House is the most famous and you should not miss the fresh and tasty street food on Fridays at the Rocks Market. At the weekend they sell fashion and handmade goods.
Alice Springs: Do you know the song: Alice, who the fuck is Alice? Not only Ayers Rock, which is 335 km away from Alice Springs is worth a visit, but there is also more as Australia is a huge country “Uluru” (Ayers Rock) is sacred to the “Pitjantjatjara Anangu”, the Aboriginal humans of the area. The region across the formation is home to an abundance of springs, rock caves, waterholes, and historical paintings.
For hiking follow the Larapinta Trail, a bushwalking trail. Native animals can be seen in the Desert Park or outside, yes, they follow you (haha, mostly when you are scared) for example kangaroos, koalas, thorny dragons (scary), wallabies, frogs, crocodiles (scary), camels, snakes (scary), scorpions (scary) and spiders (scary), birds, wombats and dingos (Fraser Island, scary). Taking a group tour and seeing the sunset or sunrise, sleeping outside under the stars, love the wildness of the Simpson Desert, it is another unforgettable experience in the country of Aussie’s.
Brisbane: In my opinion, Brisbane was very beautiful and is worth a visit. Parks (Roma Street or South Bank Parkland), botanic gardens, the Kangaroo Point Cliffs (heritage-listed cliffs located at Kangaroo Point just across the Brisbane River), and museums, bars, and the Albert Street Uniting Church, are must visit in Brisbane. Brisbane has jumped on the craft beer educate with some outstanding-passionate people gutsy sufficient to open their own breweries. Take your time to relax and sample something from the fresh and tasty menu or pick up some fish and chips at the brewery restaurant.
Melbourne: Do you want to see wartime artifacts? In Melbourne, “The Shrine” of Remembrance is a war memorial. It constructed to honor the ladies and men of Victoria who served in World War I, but nowadays capabilities as a memorial to all Australian citizens who have served in any war.
One impressive experience I could never forget, was the Old Melbourne Gaol, a former jail, and current museum. It held and done a number of Australia’s maximum notorious criminals, which includes serial killer “Frederick Bailey Deeming” and bushranger “Ned Kelly”. Some minutes our group was sitting in the jail and the doors were closed and the light went out. I felt like a prisoner and was horrified and more than happy to not being forced to go in there again. As a guest, you can also enjoy the hangman night’s tour. No idea what happens there.
Perth: Animal lovers will like the Zoo of Perth. Since 1898 they housed more than 1258 animals of 164 species and an extensive botanical collection. Take a train and visit Fremantle, it is a lovely place with a market. There you can also find the Round House, which was the first permanent building built-in 1830 in the Swan River Colony. Near Perth is the Penguin Island and also Rottnest Island, a sandy, low-lying island formed on a base of aeolianite limestone. There is also a Theme Park and a lot of beaches to surf or swim. And tasty honey beer and lots of language school students who enjoy BBQ.
Do you know what is really great? The Great Barrier Reef is really great for great snorkeling and a diving day. Great. Really Great.
