Resources and information on Indigenous Peoples of Australia are provided on a separate
web-page at: http://www.ldb.org/oz-indi.htm.
Australia Institute - "promotes a more just,
sustainable and peaceful Australian society through research, publication and vigorous
participation in public debate" - excellent resources on topics the Institute has worked
- Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)
- Australian Citizenship Database - "This searchable database contains material relating to the sociological, political, policy and welfare dimensions of citizenship. The searchable database includes a range of material, from theoretical and analytical academic literature through to descriptive material useful for case studies on specific current issues. The database contains entries for books, book chapters, journal articles, reports, media items and theses. Many of these have abstracts, and where possible the full text is included, or a link is provided to to the Internet location of the full text. The database includes a special Privatisation Collection, which has a main focus on privatisation in Victoria"
Australian Coastal Atlas - "lets you view layers of information about the Australian coast, you can even print out your own custom map. The Atlas includes maps and images of the coastal zone showing information about water quality, climate, fisheries and more"
- Australian governments: federal, state, local
list - some of the finest Australian slang which have "enriched" the English
- Australian universities
- Australian Venom and Toxin Database - well, this continent is more wild than one believes when only visiting the big cities around the coast line ... be prepared for the unexpected
- Boyer-Lectures 1995 by Eva Cox - this is just brilliant stuff!!
- QueenslandWeb - excellent resource on everything about Queensland, highly recommended
- Guide to Australia ..
- Australian Broadcasting Corporation News
- Australian Broadcasting Corporation Radio National
- Pauline Hanson's first speech to the House of Representatives - Pauline Hanson is the parliamentarian who in 1996 presented a rather controversial maiden-speech in Parliament. Some call her a racist, but I'd rather believe she presented fascistic thoughts. Her speech reminded me on some of the stuff Adolf Hitler told the Germans in the 1930s. I'm not saying that Hanson could be compared with Hitler. I'm only saying that the pattern of thoughts is very much alike
- Health information for overseas visitors to Australia
- Leftlink - Victoria's Broad Left Mailing List - the list covers Australia in fact, and this site provides rich resources to other web-sites in Australia
- PictureAustralia - provides access to a large database of images of Australia
- SBS - Australia's National Multicultural Broadcaster - it's even more as it is not privately owned; its program is highly recommended, particularly if you want to know what's going on in the world
