This website is part of the Explore Australia bilingual (Arabic and English) educational resource.

Explore Australia is a gift from the young people of Australia to the youth of the Arab nations. It is an initiative of the Council for Australian-Arab Relations (CAAR).

Explore Australia is a multimedia resource about Australia for students and teachers.

The aim of the kit is to inform young people living in Arab countries about various aspects of life in Australia, particularly the lifestyle of young people ‘Down Under’.

It has initially been provided free of charge to schools in Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

This site also provides information for Australian students about life in these Arab countries.

We hope that through knowledge there will be increased contact and understanding between young people of both regions.

We hope you enjoy working through this site.
