Posted May 02, 2018 11:18:53Australia is known for its vast natural resources, but what about its hidden secrets?ABC News’ John Logan has compiled a list of the most secretive places in the country.
“There’s an Australian way of life that’s really been around for a long time,” he said.
“It’s the way people live their lives, they have their own language, they own their own ways of working and what they like to do, but they don’t always have the same access to the media.”
For example, Logan says, if you ask people what they remember about their childhood, you might get a different story than you would from someone who grew up in the US.
“You might hear about the US in the ’50s, ’60s, but you might not know what it was like in Australia,” he explained.
“I think it’s a bit like in that we’re not in a position to be able to put the pieces together for ourselves.”
But there are other secrets in Australian life, including hidden secrets about the state of the country’s relationship with the environment and the state’s relationship to climate change.
“If you look at the state you find that a lot of the things that we’ve been talking about in terms of the environment are really quite important to people in terms.
They don’t think about it as an issue that they’re worried about.
They think about climate change as an important issue,” he told ABC News Breakfast.”
And that’s a big part of why they’re attracted to the Australian way, is that it’s so transparent, so open, and it’s quite honest about it.”
