National traditions of Australia. Habits, mentality and the way of living

Hobart Customs House The modern Australian nation which almost entirely comprises of descendants of European immigrants is truly unique. Having absorbed the features of different peoples, she gave her representatives a special worldview: today’s inhabitants of Australia have nothing in common with their ancestors from Europe, who settled in the continent during the colonial era. They seemed to take from them all the best characteristics, and eventually developed a kind of mentality that made it possible to build a comfortable environment for living in isolation from the rest of the world. Having traveled a long way to finding their own nation, gave the Australians the right to be proud of their country and culture. It is patriotism that distinguishes the inhabitants of Australia among others, as well as other personality traits of a typical Australian.

So, in Australia everyone is an individualist. The value of personal space is manifested in many aspects of life: from gastronomic predilections to the organization of leisure and more serious issues. Australians are rarely affected by the opinions of others in relation to their appearance, their manner of conduct, and their views on life. They on the other hand will never learn the lives of others. Being strongly pronounced individualists, they are extremely friendly, open, and easy to get along with. The people of Australia are known for their benevolent and liberal attitude towards foreigners, which allows tourists to feel liberated in the country.
The desire not to cause others any inconvenience, grows out of Australia’s anxious attitude towards convenience, especially in the domestic sphere. Choosing between beauty and comfort, they will most likely prefer the latter. On the streets of Australian cities, you can often meet people in strict suits and with sneakers on their feet: comfort when driving for them is much more important than the compatibility of styles. The same attitude is displayed in yet another of their well-known feature, their amazing sense of humor. Australians like to joke and they do so with pleasure. A typical Australian will never miss the opportunity to joke in a conversation about a neutral topic. He will also not hesitate to crack a good-natured joke on himself or a converser. However, they do not seek to ridicule people for the sake of it. In the Australian culture, witticisms and jokes are one of the attributes of informal communication. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Residents of Australia tend to be critical of authorities: they freely criticize the government and its actions, and do not prostrate themselves before authorities solely because of their higher status. Australian society is alien to the division into classes with regards to wealth and social status. Everyone is treated with an attitude that he/she deserves, irrespective of whether he be a wealthy citizen or a worker in the service sector. Australians unlike others can adequately assess themselves. Not considering themselves worse off or better than anyone, they are known to treat others with kindness and respect. Upstarts in Australia will always be put in their place as such kinds of persons are not welcomed here.
War Memorial The Australian nation is one of the most mobile. Living in the same place for a long time casts boredom on a person. This causes them to travel a lot around the country and the world. An Australian does not brood for too long when deciding whether to move to another city or state in search of better living conditions. Australians are constant in one thing, their careful attitude towards nature, which they also transmit to subsequent generation. The people of Australia are proud of the fact that most of the continent’s natural resources are today almost untouched. Ecological care is widely supported by Australian law. So, Australia is today one of the first countries where the law on the protection of animals was passed.
These spots really worth the attention of a real traveler-researcher. …

The friendliness, openness, and democracy of Australians are especially well manifested in the sphere of personal relationships. The best entertainment for them is a meeting with friends at a pub or a home party, and the best way to relax after a day’s work is to spend an evening in the company of friends and family. The doors of Australian houses are always open for guests, to whom courteous owners provide all the best. However, in spite of this, extended families are not common in the Australian society. Australians prefer to settle separately from family members, and therefore quite early gain independence and leave the family home. Much of this is facilitated by material support from the state and full employment.
