about australia

Australia is a unique and diverse country in every way - in culture, population, climate, geography, and history. Australian culture is as broad and varied as the country's landscape. Australia is multicultural and multiracial and this is reflected in the country's food, lifestyle and cultural practices and experience.


The majority of Australia experiences temperate weather for most of the year. The northern states of Australia are typically warm all the time, with the southern states experiencing cool winters but rarely sub-zero temperatures. Snow falls on the higher mountains during the winter months, enabling skiing in southern New South Wales and Victorian ski resorts, as well as the smaller resorts in Australia's island state, Tasmania.


An Australian education equips people with the knowledge, skills and networks that will last a lifetime.The growth in numbers has been consistently in the region of 10% per year. There are 38 public and four private universities in Australia, all of which offer tertiary qualifications of a high standard. Eight of the country’s universities are in the Top 100 of the 2011 QS World University Rankings.
