Why does Australia act like Britain?

The Australians play our sports (Cricket, Rubgy)
They say our slang (Bloody, mate, bugger)
They eat our food (Fish N Chips shops)

Why do they have a very simular culture to ours?
Probably for the same reasons that Britons enjoy so many things invented by the Greeks, Romans, French, Germans, Vikings, Spannish, Portuguese, Chinese, Indians, Pakistanis, Jamaicans, South Africans, Canadians, Irish, Scots, Welsh, New Zealanders, Australians, Americans etc. etc. etc. etc.

There is very little new under the sun.

Are you peeved that we keep beating you at Cricket (probably the only culturally civilised example you cite)? Emotion: smile ,

Australia was a British nation. Founded by the British, heavily populated by British people or descendents of British people. Of course our cultures are similar because (largely) we're the same people. But like the British, Australians love the best of all the world's cultures and has imported them, so Australia now doesn't only 'act' like Britain. Eg, We play American sport too (baskeball) speak American slang, and eat American Fast-food. But there is also the unique Aussie culture too - our own sport (Australian rules football), our slang, and our own food.

Of course there are also many Australians whose families have come from parts of the world other than Britain - like Asia, Africa and they brought their culture. There are also the original Australians - the Aboriginal people who have their own culture.

Australia acts like Britain but not only Britain...
