Innovation

Australia has a long history of innovation. Around 65,000 years ago, inventions like the boomerang and firestick farming helped the First Australians adapt to Australia’s harsh conditions and become the world’s oldest living culture today.

Since then, Australia’s development has been forged through its enterprising spirit—the resilience, creativity and unquenchable desire to succeed.

Australians have applied their global outlook and local know-how to solve some of our most pressing problems.

Over a billion people around the world rely on Australian discoveries.

From the bionic ear to high-speed wifi to spray-on skin, Australian inventions have changed the way we see, hear and interact with our environment.

With collaborators from Japan and all around the world, Australian innovators continue to work to improve our world.

As Australia’s second largest investor, Japan has provided much of the backing essential to helping Australian engineers, scientists and ICT specialists push the limits of progress.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs, scientists and inventors from Australia and Japan are working on topics as diverse as superfoods, regenerative medicine and solar energy.

Join us to see how Australia is making our world a smarter place.

What makes Australia such a great place to live?

The answer might surprise you.

It’s not just Australia’s spectacular natural environment, world’s most liveable cities, and globally recognised gourmet food and wine.

In a word, it’s all about community. A community including Indigenous Australians who have been in Australia for more than 60,000 years, and people who have come to this land from over 200 countries, bringing with them more than 300 languages.

It’s about Australia’s love affair with volunteering, sport, arts and community activities and the values they represent: teamwork, hard work and acting locally.

It’s about Australians’ personal commitment to world-class health and education systems, accessible to all.

It’s about Australia’s work at home and abroad to improve gender equality, disability inclusion and human rights for Indigenous peoples.

And it’s about Australia’s unique position in the Indo-Pacific community of nations, working with close partners like Japan to deal with common regional challenges and to lend a hand where needed.

Join us to see what makes Australia a lifestyle superpower.

Creativity

Australians love creating things.

And creating things with friends is even better.

Australian culture is itself a collaborative creation, drawing together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture along with inspiration from recent arrivals from all countries.

Almost all Australians engage with the arts, producing a vibrant and diverse arts culture. This passion is reflected in the global success enjoyed by Australia’s leading performance groups.

Bangarra Dance Theatre is acclaimed around the world for its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander storytelling through compelling contemporary dance and soul-stirring soundscapes.

The Australian Chamber Orchestra is widely recognised as one of the world’s greatest chamber orchestras.

Australia’s film culture thrives not just in Hollywood, but also in very popular short film festivals like Flickerfest and Tropfest.

Off the stage, Australian culture is on show in many local museums and galleries, many open free to the public.

Join us to see Australia’s creative spirit on show, on stage and on the road in Japan.
