G’day, Mate! Australia is Australia is known for its vibrant and thriving art scene, including fine arts, performing arts and even the art of the written word. Sydney Opera House, anyone? Let’s kick back and explore some of the wonderful art Australia has to offer here on Zatista.
Over 80% of Australia’s plants, mammals, frogs, and reptiles are native and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Many of these you can see through artwork made by Australia’s indigenous people known as the Aboriginals. Australia has one of the oldest histories in the world. Aborigines from Australia date back between 40,000 and 60,000 years. Much of this art is very vibrant and colorful, and is created with a dotting technique. These ancient methods have been used by Aboriginal artists for centuries, and show masterful techniques unlike anything else seen in the world.
The world’s longest golf course is located in Australia. It’s called Nullarbor Links, and it’s just a bit over 850 miles long. You’d really need a golf cart to get to the tee!

From the Opera House in the moonlight to a breathtaking landscape at Uluru, it’s hard not to take photos of Australia.
