Australians are the citizens of Australia. Aside from the Indigenous Australian population, nearly all Australians or their ancestors immigrated within the past 230 years. As such the term does not necessarily imply a specific racial background. 'Aussie' is a widely used colloquialism used to refer to Australian people.
Mainstream Australian culture is a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants beginning with the early settlers from England, Scotland, and Ireland. As such Anglo-Celtic Australians have been highly influential in shaping the nation's culture.
The demographics of the major cities are often different to that of rural cities as a result of the differing migration patterns.
Australians can refer to:
- The citizens of Australia, as defined by Australian nationality law
- People whose ancestors lived in Australia
