Members of the board, today I am here because the film Gallipoli is a necessity in your upcoming film festival. The movie Gallipoli, showcases the story of the ANZACs and contains many aspects of the Australian identity. This film is an essential movie in any Australian film festival because it plays a crucial part in the development and the representation of the country on an international scale. The movie demonstrates many aspects of the Australian identity such as brotherhood, the belief in the underdog and it is a constant reminder of the mistakes that were made and the loss and suffering brought on by war. The theme of mateship is a large aspect of the Australian identity.
Virtually every sport is played keenly somewhere in Australia, and it is this drive that has enabled Australia to be known globally for its success. So it is no wonder that sport is such an important part of Australian history and culture. Not only does it unite Australia as a nation, but it has also built strong links and relationships globally, all in the interest of competing to do ones country
This high and irreplaceable reputability is strengthened by the fact that Australian Football League, which is the biggest sports tournament in Australia and employs the code as the official rules of its games. It can, in fact, be regarded as a sports heritage that is known to have been passed down from the combination of old Irish and Aboriginal origins. These Rules are rightfully paid attention to by the higher levels as well; as they have come to become a legacy that Australia proudly identifies herself with. As the nation’s football gets divided between various codes, it is indeed the Aussie Rules code that takes the lead under Australian Football League and unites the enthusiasm of the whole country. Australian Football League’s initiative to take the footy up to the international level is undoubtedly a commendable measure that would preserve and propagate the game for times and variations to
The Australian and New Zealand soldiers fighting on the Western Front in World War I impeccably displayed the Anzac qualities and demonstrated what it truly meant to be an Anzac. The soldiers fighting on the Western Front were the true embodiment of the Anzac Spirit. (Awm.gov.au, 2015) The Anzac Spirit is made up of the qualities that the Anzacs have come to be known for. These qualities include comradeship, bravery, ingenuity, endurance and many more. Charles Bean wrote “By dawn on December 20th Anzac had faded into a dim blue line lost amid other hills on the horizon as the ships took their human freight to Imbros, Lemnos and Egypt.
The book demonstrates an image of patriotism within Australia. Australian’s are prideful of past endeavours in war and celebrate this twice a year in ANZAC day on the 25th of April and Remembrance Day on the 11th of November. They celebrate this because the war represented the ultimate from the mateship. A prime example of this was the battle of Gallipoli, were the Australian soldiers (diggers)
Kevin rudds apology in 2007 was a delight for us to finally say to the aboriginal people and it has been a start for the two different kinds of people become united but as of now we are far from it. The land rights for Australia belong to the aboriginals and the lands that they hold close should be returned. Australia is a multi-cultured country now and has all kinds mixed races but we should respect the aboriginals just as much as ourselves and other kinds of people because they were the founders of this beautiful nation. NAIDOC week should be celebrated the same as Australia day is by Australians, with pride and respect for the land we live on and the natives as
Great bridge type. Cable-stayed bridge The Seafarers Bridge is the most exquisite bridge in all of Australia because of its style, size, and in some cases bridge type. These three reasons because these three things are very much important for any bridge. Also because the design is great,
In 1914 WW1 began and Australia supplied the allied powers (mainly for the mother land: Britain) with soldiers known as the ANZAC’s. These soldiers played a very significant role in the legend of Australia through the long lasting stories and qualities they have established. Firstly, the ANZAC’s helped to define Australia’s personality and morals to themselves and other nations, many people like to think that our nation was born in WW1 and have taken a list of attributes from this occurrence. These attributes were the creation of the Anzac legend, they included: mateship, spirit of the bushman, independence, humour, and bravery. One other quality the Anzac’s stood by was that all people had to prove their worth even if they were already seen as authority figures “The Anzac’s were seen as disrespectful to authority.
In my book, you’re winners!” This movie reveals a powerful message that winning isn’t everything; it is passion and striving for excellence that matters most. The staff and students are committed to excellence and will continue to strive for “Moments That
Named after the indigenous people for their “confidence and manly behaviour” by Capt. Arthur Phillip, Manly Beach is among the northern beaches of Sydney with three main sections (north to south: Queenscliff, North Steyne and South Steyne). In Manly there is no where that is more that a kilometre from the ocean or harbour, making coastal management a major priority to both the public and government/s concerned. The Australian government holds the coasts of Australia with high regard as it is a staple in the Australian lifestyle; not only for leisure and tourism, but also for urban development, aquaculture and agriculture, shipping and transportation, mining, and manufacturing and trade. The Department of Environment recognises that with more
