Lucky you, I'm in a company with 300+ employees. Only 1 asian dept manager currently. The rest are all aussies, brits or irish. Is that a lot?

If he was here as a teenager, then he probably got his education locally and could still be considered local. When I refer to immigrants, I mostly mean those who arrived here as adults and are looking for jobs.

I really never thought they treat Brits that way, maybe because of different culture. I just wonder what is Ozzie felt if they're in Britain or US, are they treated differently?
Oh the Poms /Brits are treated with a slight annoyance by the Aussie,s i believe its to do with the fact that the English, dutch, and the Abo,s found Australia and it wasn't the Australians themselves lol that discovered Australia, a country most wish to flock to, a success. Oh and most Aussie,s don't like the queen/royal family only because she governs Australia in a way, they don't like the English cricket team and they certainly recent the fact that the beloved Australian flag has The Union Jack in the upper left corner (or canton) acknowledges Australia's origin as a British settlement. Once again its all down to the good Ole Brits lol.

On another note most and not all Brits are whiny people they complain about everything there hooligans when it comes to football, there very similar to the Aussie,s there bad looses at sport, they drink too much and expect most people to adjust to there way of living, even though there in another country. They want to take over an area as if they own the place, the kids are little villains and have a degree in swearing, vandalism is second nature and where the Australians have Abo,s the kids in the UK have ASBO,s which means Anti Social Behaviour Order from the courts and police, and then you have the Brits that have there noses so far up themselves that they don't believe in socializing with the lower class. so i don't blame the Australians for being a little anti social with the Brits.

What you're saying are right. I remember when i was young, there's lots of English, Americans and Ozzie who work in O&G industries back in my hometown. Seems like there's something in common, BEER! However, i do found that they have different culture background even they're white though.
Some just mixed around with their own country community. I think this is just a nature of people who sometimes being conservative not to mix around, please correct me if i'm wrong.
But as an impression from me is that, UK is like from a noble monarchy country but speaking in soft but arrogant. US is a mixed society which we are exposed mostly of their pop culture. Oz?well, to be honest is that working in mines, farm and dirt....sorry,

I thought people love to migrate to Australia because it is a multi-culture country and people can live in anyways they want.

Yes, but somehow i do found that some people just want to stick to their own community which i don't really agree. Mixing and learning other races or culture may enhance your understanding and tolerance.
IMHO, i think Australia is on the right track, emphasising the multiculturalism and will lead their competitiveness in the world compared to one nation country. It ain't easy but it can be done.

That's probably my biggest concern not so much being a Kiwi as we're brought in a similar way & the banter is all part of it to a point where an Australian would have to try pretty hard to offend me.

The wife on the other hand is German & certain things do upset her like conversations involving Hitler & Nazism, there is a small boganist minority who do have a tendency to say stupid things without thinking & that's something she'll probably have to adjust to.

In general though, whilst only ever been a tourist there, have only had good experiences there.

Immigrants tend to suffer first when an economy heads south & they are competing with locals for their livelihood.

More of an aberration, but this is on the news.
Girls shown the door after racist bus rant

Not really sure if chinese since she's categorized as asian. Both ways - you can see the racism & the good side of Aussies.

I believe that's a wrong expectation/initial mindset. Do you have experience in other first world countries?

The truth is people love to migrate because the conditions in their countries are worse.

To make your move a success in any country you need to appreciate the local culture, join in with the local population and embrace all that is good about the country. In many cases it is misunderstandings and misconceptions that cause most of the problems.

How would you feel in an Australians shoes if an expat moved next door to you and did not mix with you? In general the Australian population are very welcoming of expats but there needs to be some give and take on both sides.

People move here for many reasons but as far as multi culture goes yes there is an abundance of nationality,s here but they all seem to stick together in there own community which is sad.

I agree this is one of the main reasons people move to Australia, the country is so often advertised as utopia and unfortunately the expectations are not all they seem to be.

I agree with this and what your saying is correct but if the shoe was on the other foot and your next door neighbours had to pass snard comments of " more poms moved in or another bunch of scroungers or even worse comments were made then this isnt welcoming to any expat. I dont blame allot of Ausies being cautious of any Brit considering the reputation they have but sometimes i believe the snard remarks should be left to one side after all if the Brits insulted the Aussies then i dont think they would accept this too easily, it doesnt give any person the right to insult a person and expect them to accept it just because were in there country. As you said its give and take on both sides.
