800px-Flag_of_Australia.svgHi my name is Rebecca and me and my group are doing a topic on australian aboriginies.

Here is some information I found on the web.

Australia's first settlers brought with them the tastes of 18th century Great Britain. Their familiar dishes such as roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, Irish stew and steamed pudding were, for most of the year, totally unsuitable for the harsh climate and conditions.
In the last two hundred years these eating habits have gradually changed, and continue to do so. In the Gold Rush of 1851, adventurers and speculators came from all over the world, among them thousands of Chinese who began successful market gardens, greengrocers shops and restaurants, thus introducing us to new tastes. From there it continued.

Today, influenced by the large number of immigrants from Mediterranean, Asian and other countries, our menus now reflect Australia's multicultural society. Once traditional dishes have been spiced up with new flavours, but when it comes to fair dinkum Aussie tucker, there are a few classic dishes that have stood the test of time and cannot be improved. (Recipes and information have been provided for traditional dishes)

Here is an aboriginal story from http://www.dreamtime.auz.net

The Aborigines, like the Christians, had their own stories that explained the origin of the world, themselves and all that make up the world that provided Aboriginal people with a strong and close association with the land for thousands of years. These stories gave unity and purpose to Aboriginal societies in the past and are important today in maintaining their identity. Michael's works of art are his interpretation of these lovely Dreaming stories and he is able to combine modern art materials and techniques with traditional patterns, styles and subject matter.
