Australia - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Since its discovery by Europeans more than 200 years ago, Australia has seen lots of changes. Just like all other countries in the world, Australia has its own unique culture and lifestyle. People from every corner of the world have moved to Australia and contributed their diversity to the Australian culture.
 
2     For a long time, Australia was thought to be a country of sheep farmers and gold miners. But today's Australia is one of the most urbanized countries in the world. Most of the people live in coastal cities and almost half of Australia's population lives in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
 
3     Australian cities have huge suburban areas. Only a few people live in the city centers. Most citizens prefer to live in their own houses in suburbs and may travel up to 1.5 hours to get to work.
