Australia is different-a vast island-continent with distances so great that the capital of Western Australia is closer to Singapore than it is to Sydney. The landscape embraces magnificent tropical rainforests and deserts the size of several European states; temperate areas that sustain a flourishing wine industry, making Australia the world's fourth largest wine exporter; a sixteen-thousand-mile coastline of breathtaking beaches; and its unique fauna is testament to the country's down-underness. Culture Smart! Australia introduces you to a young nation with one of the world's highest standards of living, where people work to live in order to enjoy a lifestyle that many across the globe covet, and in which Australians take great pride (and don't mind telling you about).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“For those who are interested in the land down under, this audiobook presents an overview of Australian culture and history. Narrator Peter Noble’s narration is easy to understand, though some aspects of the work do not transition well from the written page to the audio format—for example, when Noble seems to be doing rote recitations of facts and figures. During these lists, the listener may become lost or disengaged because of the lack of variation. Additionally, while Noble’s narration is, on the whole, clear and effective, it might have been more fitting to have used an actual Australian as the narrator of a book on Australian culture and customs.” AudioFile
