AUSTRALIA

Did you know that the world map looks very different in Australia? It is upside down, so the South Pole is "up" and Australia is in the center of the map.
That being said, you can bring a full suitcase of unique experiences from Australia. Endless coral reefs fascinate with an incredibly rich underwater world and the large beaches with perfect waves are predestined for surfers. With a bit of luck you can also meet the typical koalas, kangaroos and platypuses.
Of course you get to see the Sydney Opera House, the exoticism of the Aboriginal people, the famous Uluru and the Blue Mountains - Australia is a special world of unique attractions and adventures!

Unfazed by traditions, Australians don't mind combining their native bush food, seafood and meat like crocodile, kangaroo and emu with the spices of their Asian neighbors. They like to cook a roast lamb at Easter, fresh prawns at Christmas and enjoy juicy mangos in the summer. Australians also prefer to eat outdoors as much as possible; breakfast in a street café, toasting the sunset with a glass of sparkling wine and a plate of oysters on a roof terrace or meeting friends for a barbecue in the garden.
Although Australia does not legally have an official language and English is not the country's official language, it is spoken almost everywhere.
Indigenous peoples, such as the Australian Aborigines, speak Australian languages, which are divided into a variety of language families and groups. Despite such a large number, the total number of their speakers is small - no more than 56.000 people.
In Australia, the languages of the immigrant groups are also spoken, primarily Chinese, Italian and Greek.
Religion
By the early 21st century, more than half of Australians identified as Christians. Almost a quarter of Australians do not profess any religion. Only 2.5% of residents identify themselves as Buddhists. Unlike the European settlers, the traditional Aboriginal communities are very spiritual. For them, religion gives a meaning to life and the sustainable connection between land and people is a main part of their life.
