Culture

Since 1788, the primary basis of Australian
culture has been Anglo-Celtic, although
distinctive Australian features soon arose from
the country's natural environment and
Indigenous cultures. Since the middle of the
20th century, Australian culture has been
influenced by American popular culture
(particularly television and cinema), by
Australia's Asian neighbors, and by large-scale
immigration from non-English-speaking countries.
