The image of Australia held by most non-Australians is of a vast, dry island populated by beach-loving, beer-swilling, laid-back, 'bronzed Aussies.' Australia is known as the 'lucky country', where everyone gets a 'fair go'. The truth is, however, that Australia is a country strongly divided by racism.'

This tradition of racism, discrimination and human rights violations began with the arrival of English 'settlers" on the Australian continent in 1788.
