Australia is bounded by the dark blue waters of the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Arafura Sea to the north, lapped by the turquoise waves of the Indian Ocean to the west, and the mighty Southern Ocean to the south.
Australia owns one of the oldest ground and the flattest of all continents, the highest point, Mt Kosciuszko which has a hight of 2228m (7,310 feet) is in the Australian Alps between New South Wales and Victoria. The fertile coastal strip hides a dry and inhospitable centre, the Outback - a photographer's delight with its colours of flaming red, rich brown, pale yellow and orange interspersed by the bluish-green of low scrub and the linen-white trunks of ghost gum trees. This seemingly endless land is broken by saltlakes, starkly beautiful mountains like the MacDonnell Ranges near Alice Springs, Flinders Ranges in South Australia and the mysterious rock formations of Ayers Rock/Uluru, Mt Olga/Kata Tjuta, and Mt Augustus.

They attend that everyone have the chance to come into the hospital when someone is ill.

8. Aboriginal Culture

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are one of the world's oldest civilisations.
Aborigines lived in isolation for thousands of years and having no written history only fragments of their rich culture remain. While the precise meanings of many art sites were lost when clans were either displaced or destroyed, it is probable that, like the land around them, certain sites had great religious significance and stories, beliefs, rituals and songs were connected to them. Aboriginal art has primarily social and religious functions. It tells of the Dreamtime when the "creation ancestors" travelled across the land, creating the seasons, forming the land and clashing with other creatures. It explains the laws which govern the ceremonies and day-to-day life of each family group (tribe). It is also a record of happenings such as the killing of an animal for food, the passing of a family group and in more recent times the arrival of the white man. Rock art in its many forms is still a living part of a spectacular array of art forms connected with religious and daily secular life. Ground sculpture, body painting, wood carving and bark painting are other art forms which are combined with rich oral traditions, elaborate songs and dance styles.
