Abstract

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.' Until very recently, racism and discrimination against Indigenous Australians were enshrined in law, resulting in gross discrimination and human rights violations. This tradition of racism, discrimination and human rights violations began with the arrival of English 'settlers" on the Australian continent in 1788.
