ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is the most isolated city in the world, it is closer to Singapore than it is to Sydney. Australia is the world’s largest island, smallest continent and today it has one of the world’s highest standards of living.

The belief in being “Fair Dinkum” – honest, up-front and a person who keeps to their word harks back to pioneering days. That isn’t to say that the phrase is obsolete today because immigrants were quick to pick it up. They converted to what epitomized the Australian way of life and with a new intensity.

Culture Smart! is a concise guide to understanding the Australian people. It will illuminate the complexities of their collective personality. Familiarise yourself with their customs, traditions and culture and experience Australia authentically.
