Communication and national character
Australians are very friendly and open to communication. In a conversation with them, you should not be surprised by jokes. Usually, Australians quickly move to informal conversations. For some time, a language barrier may arise, since Australian English and the manner of speaking among locals are rather peculiar.
First of all, Australians value individuality, truthfulness, and independence. Also, the locals almost do not recognize the authorities, and very rich people in Australia rarely receive respect. Here, first of all, they look at the qualities of character, and only then on financial capabilities. Talking about income is not welcome there. Australians love to travel, but only in their own country. They are quite indifferent to other countries. This is strange since the majority of the population are immigrants.
Some habits in Australia remained from English, while others were formed due to the hot climate. Dine there at about 7 o’clock and, quite possibly that it will be a barbecue. Australians do not eat kangaroos, rabbits, but prefer to eat more sheep meat.
Many local dishes are still dishes from different cuisines of the world. You can find them only in Australian. Meat pie, biscuits, Melbourne chickens are considered exclusively local. Seafood is also loved here, and it is cooked in different ways like traditionally or with a slight Asian touch. From alcoholic beverages, Australians drink local wine and beer.
