It wasn’t long before Australia was merely a collection of British colonies. Only after the country gained its independence that it came up with its indigenous mix of culture and traditions. Just like the other art forms, Australian theatre in the early days was merely an extension of the traditions of English literature and British and Irish theatre. With time, Australian theatre did evolve as large number of theatre artists gained international recognition, most notable of them includes Sir Robert Helpmann, Dame Joan Sutherland, Barry Humphries, David Williamson and so on. Similar to theatre, Australian film industry is also relatively modern, its earliest ever feature film being produced in 1906. Having said that, Australian cinematic industry deserves tremendous applause and recognition for it has in the short span gained quite a reputation for itself. The Australian world of motion pictures has come up with some of the most talented bunch of actors and actresses that the world today looks up to. Nicole Kidman, Rod Taylor, Errol Flynn, Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana, Sam Worthington are some of the priced Australian entertainers.
