Culture - A superyacht guide to Asia Pacific cruising destinations, with sample itineraries
Australia’s history traces back to the Aborigines right through to the colonisation of the country by English explorer Captain Cook. Cook first sailed to Australia in 1770 and claimed the east coast, later naming it New South Wales.

The words Down Under and Aussie larrikin are synonymous with Australia and that’s not a bad thing. Australia has a strong, unique culture all of its own - you’ll find people informal, open and willing to lend a hand, or welcome you into their world. Australia today has been forged by the peoples of many cultures united in the search for a better life, and this has made the country one where informality reigns and a strong appreciation of the good things in life stands supreme - enjoying life, close friends and family, good food and wine, and beautiful scenery.

Australian Aboriginal people have a rich culture stretching back at least 50,000 years with an intuitive understanding of the land, and deeply-spiritual approach which can be seen in the rock-art remaining and in contemporary Aboriginal art. Discover places steeped in Aboriginal history in the Northern Territory. Visit Australia’s Red Centre and walk around the base of Uluru with a guide. Browse Aboriginal art in Alice Springs, where the Arrernte people have lived for 20,000 years or learn about Dreamtime myths in the intricate rock art galleries of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park.
