Australia in Brief

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is proud to launch the 49th edition of the popular booklet Australia in Brief.

The booklet provides an authoritative overview of Australia’s history, the land, its people and way of life. It also looks at Australia’s economic, scientific and cultural achievements and its foreign, trade and defence policies.

A limited number of hard copy versions of Australia in Brief will be available through selected Australian missions overseas.

The new on-line version containing links to up-to-the minute information managed by other government departments will be regularly expanded and updated. Through its pages, Australians and international audiences alike can gain a glimpse of the unique land which is Australia; a continent full of contrasts, and a stable, democratic and culturally diverse nation, with a skilled workforce and a strong, competitive economy.
