Bells Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the Australian Coast. Every Easter, the world’s best surfers go there for a world championship surfing event. Some of these surfers tell why Bells is such a popular event.
This sport has also developed a surf industry boom. Two corporate giants, Rip Curl and Quiksilver, along with Billabong have established Australia as the powerhouse of multimillion dollar surf fashion sales.

Aboriginal art is also known as The Western Desert Art Movement, a trend that owns its beginnings to Geofrey Bardon, a white art advisor who worked in Australia with an Aboriginal community in the early 1970s.
It is only just over 30 years that these people began painting but during the 80s, institutions started to appreciate this art, which became an extraordinary Art Movement in the 20th Century.
Thanks to Mr. Bardon, these paintings have become not only a way of life for the Aboriginal people but also a means of sustaining lives blighted by diabetes and other diseases.
