Description

Australia's culture is an interesting mix of ancient traditions passed down by the native peoples, as well as the traditions and culture of England, where most of its immigrant population came from. This interesting book describes how British influence and the traditions, beliefs, and rituals of indigenous peoples have developed into many of the lively and colorful festivals celebrated today. Young readers will also learn how the Australian people celebrate family occasions.
