Overview

Australia is the largest island in the world and is located in the Southern Hemisphere. It is the smallest among the continents of the world. Australia is a well-loved tourist destination and millions of visitors head there every year to spend languid summer months and enjoy the spectacular sand kissed beaches. Australia Tourism is one of the leading industries in the country. The landscape of Australia is essentially a low plateau; central Australia being sand desert regions and the southeast having fertile pains. Australia Climate is generally equitable and tourists flock to the country all round the year.
 
Sydney, Australia’s gateway city and the capital of New South Wales (and the site for the 2000 Olympics) is built around one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, and along kilometres of golden beaches stretching north and south of the city on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.Sydney is a friendly city offering visitors a variety of attractions and activities. The beaches and harbour play a major role in the lives of Sydney-siders with yachting, surfing, sailboarding, swimming and water-skiing available. Many national parks and protected areas of natural bushland surround the city, and the picturesque Blue Mountains are a 90 minute journey from the city, offering walking, camping and picnicking as popular pastimes for visitors and residents alike.
Perhaps Sydney’s most famous landmark is the spectacular Opera House with its graceful ‘sails’. The Opera House has become Sydney's cultural centre, offering opera, ballet, concerts, drama and film.The harbour foreshore is home to the historic Rocks area, the site of Australia’s first European settlement in 1788, and now home to a variety of galleries, museums, restaurants and shops. Also overlooking the harbour are the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Aquarium and Taronga Zoo.
 
 Now Sydney is a ‘must see' on many a traveller's itinerary and once you've visited, you'll understand exactly why

Australia visting places:

The government of Australia has a very poor record when it comes to treatment of its Aboriginal citizens. Indigenous Australians were dispossessed of their land, despised for their culture, and marginalized, abused, and murdered. Perhaps most notorious of all the Australian policies were those that led to what has become known as the Stolen Generations. Under several federal and state programs that continued into the 1970s, the government forcibly removed Aboriginal children from their families and sent them to white families and church-run institutions for cultural reprogramming. A recent national report on the policies found that there was not a single Indigenous family that did not have at least one child taken away. Despite the deliberate genocidal nature of these programs, the government for many years refused to apologize for them. That same hostile attitude toward Aboriginal peoples was reflected in the Australian government’s long and vigorous opposition to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
      
 
Fortunately, there have been improvements in the past couple of years. A change in administration led to a national apology from the government for the Stolen Generations, and the country as a whole celebrates Sorry Day. The new administration also reversed the country’s opposition to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. But there is still along way to go. Indigenous peoples on average live 17 years less than non-Indigenous people, and every measure of social and physical welfare, from infant mortality to nutrition to health, housing, education, and employment, is significantly lower for Aboriginal Australians than for non-Indigenous Australians. And all of the negative markers for disenfranchised populations—imprisonment, domestic violence, alcoholism—are much higher for Aboriginal peoples. An Aboriginal man is 13 times as likely to be in jail as a non-Indigenous Australian, and an Indigenous teenager is 28 times more likely to be in jail.
 
 
The government is making efforts to address some of these imbalances, but their handling of child abuse in Indigenous communities demonstrates how far they have to go. They enacted a set of programs that essentially let the government take control of Indigenous communities and undermined their land rights. That situation reflects a larger problem: even where there are government programs aimed at addressing the injustices and issues facing Indigenous people, there is far too little involvement of Aboriginal Australians in setting up or implementing policies.
