Abstract

Australia was culturally diverse prior to European settlement. The original inhabitants, Indigenous Australians, comprised diverse cultures and language groups with separate territories, laws and systems (Dudgeon, Wright, Paradies, Garvey & Walker, 2014). Colonisation and subsequent immigration increased this diversity, to the point where Australia is now moderately high on the ethnic diversity index. It is near the top of the migrant integration index, and at the top of the multiculturalism policy index.
