Overview

Is the grass always greener on the other side of the fence? Peek over the pickets and find out. This vast country is affluent, multicultural and laced with natural splendor. No matter which city you're wheeling into, you'll never go wanting for an offbeat theatre production, a rocking' live band, lofty art-gallery opening, movie launch or music festival mosh. This was once a country where 'cultural cringe' held sway – the notion that anything locally produced simply wasn't up to scratch. But these days the tables have turned.Aboriginal arts – particularly painting and dance – seem immune to such fluctuations and remain timelessly captivating.
