Dating back to the early settlement poets such as Henry Lawson, A.B (Banjo) Paterson constructed the image of the bushman as a resilient, resourceful and independent larrikin who struggled in the face of great adversity to tame the Australian landscape (Lecture Two, national identity). Lawson’s poem “a mate can do no wrong” has a strong emphasis on the term ‘mateship’ and dates back to the time of settlement where everyone was your ‘mate’ and they all stuck together to tame the harsh land of
This was not considered unfair treatment by the Australian society for the simple reason that they did not exist under Australian law and were considered ‘present absentees (Hudson and Bolten, 1997). Racism and egalitarianism were interwoven until approximately the 1970. Traditional value of egalitarianism does not reflect contemporary values, but since federation immigration laws and Australia’s multiculturalism seems to reflect that egalitarianism is relevant in contemporary Australia. In saying that, a sense of Xenophobia still exists in its multicultural environment, as “having a fair go” can be seen as non-existent when society separates itself from particular cultures for example, identifying certain racial groups as ‘Muslims’ in comparison to who is deemed as acceptable ‘Australians’ (Watson, 2011). It can be argued that Australia’s national identity has been formed from images and ideas of being Australian which society and the media have shaped through story-telling, myth making, news reporting, academic pontificating, cinema production and watching, and more.

Why do we need a new flag? The current Australian flag does not represent many of the characteristics of Modern Australian Society.

Distinguish between the federal court hierarchy and the state court hierarchy . By: Ali Younis Introduction: Australia is a federation and as a result there are two levels of law that apply: state and federal law. The Australian constitution grants certain legal powers to the commonwealth (Federal) Government and others to the state and territory governments. Consequently there are separate state and federal jurisdictions, each having it’s own court structure.

A majority of worldviews are developed through surroundings, so, culture. Before settlement of Europeans around the time of Captian Cook (1836), in Australia there were roughly 250 distinct languages, 700 different dialects being spoken, and in South Australia alone there were 54 different languages being spoken (Adelaide's recipe for life Wisdom of the Kaurna, 2000, p5). Though there was vast diversity amongst the Aboriginal people across Australia, there was also cohesion around the main beliefs and ideals of the Indigenous people, the most Influential being “The Dreaming”. The large number of groups of Indigenous across early Australia still had their own distinctive language,
