With over seven million people now visiting Australia each year, the nation is quickly becoming one of the key tourism destinations in the world. This is particularly impressive given Australia’s remote location, but 2016 is looking to be a bumper year for the country, because as well as the traditional attractions, Australia has been developing some impressive cultural offerings on a global scale.
As one of Australia’s largest cities, Sydney offers a fantastic variety of events that showcase the best of Australian life. Most of January is occupied with the famous Sydney Festival that provides three week’s worth of music, dance, theatre, and many other art forms.
Whereas those looking to get closer to the true Australian spirit may find the Taste of Tasmania festival more relaxing as it provides a tranquil atmosphere and offers a mouth-watering selection of tempting cuisines from this magical part of the world.
Australia is also becoming internationally famous for its entertainment offerings. With many respected musical artists such as Courtney Barnett and Tame Impala gaining currency in the online music sphere, it’s clear that Australian music is in the ascendancy. For those keen to check out the best in Australian sounds, then the Stereosonic Festival takes place across numerous Australian cities in late November and early December, and offers a cutting edge lineup of the latest and greatest musical artists.
The film industry in Australia has also received increased attention recently thanks to Mad Max: Fury Road and The Babadook. The unfortunate passing of Heath Ledger also created many Australian movie headlines, but thankfully Ledger’s influence has managed to live on in a variety of surprising forms thanks to his iconic appearance in The Dark Knight.
The role has also provided useful inspiration for Australia’s blossoming game industry, with the online casino site Euro Palace delivering a Dark Knight slot game, as well as a chance to play a selection of other casino games ranging from poker to scratch cards in an easy and convenient format. Furthermore, Euro Palace also provides an entertaining blog feature covering pop culture developments that perfectly illustrates the multimedia offerings delivered by Australia’s leading entertainment brands.
And finally, Australia’s sporting exploits are undoubtedly one of the greatest reasons as to why many flock to this rich and diverse nation. Apart from the notable successes of their cricket and rugby teams, Australia is also famous for its spectacular surfing locations.
With hundreds of beautiful golden beaches to explore, and the legendary Australian climate, it provides the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the great Australian outdoors.
