Australian Pastimes: Part Two [Index]
"Mention any pastime and Australian's are likely into it - it's that simple"
From Laying in the Sun to Bungie Jumping - Australians' Do It!
With the diverse scenery on offer in Australia it is little wonder both that Aussies love to paint and that many artists come from overseas to portray our land on canvass.
Many Artists conduct Art Classes and the outdoors is always a great class-room, like the one in the picture on the banks of the Clarence River at Ulmarra near Grafton, New South Wales. You will find Art Classes advertised in a local paper or on Community billboards at local shopping centres.
Aussies LUV Collecting Stuff!
The collection pictured is just a part of a room full of items collected by the owner, and friends, in the beautiful little township of Ebor Falls between Armidale and Coffs Harbour in the Mid-North of New South Wales.
It contains everything from VERY old magazines, car parts, musical instruments and souvineers.
Australian Theme Parks
Fun & Theme parks are abundant in Australia. You will find theme parks on Outback Adventures, Wet and ride, Fun parks with great rides, Movie parks, Sea creature parks and that only a few. There are fun parks on harbours and animal parks in the outback.
Shoe Bag and Belt Making
There are a unique range of short courses in accessory design from studios in Melbourne, one the Sunshine Coast and many other regions and cities of Australia. Courses include shoemaking, bag making, belt making, corsetry, millinery and tutu making, and students can choose to have private tuition on all the courses. Because of a strong cultural background many tutors are among the best in their fields in the world, and many of them are world-renowned designers themselves.
