Religion

Australia has laws that uphold religious freedom.  This means that in Australia, you are free to follow your own beliefs and religious practices, provided these do not coerce or harm anyone else.

If pressed, many Australians would say that they believe in God but that they do not really follow any particular religion.  Traditionally, Sunday, the Christian Holy Day, is a day off work for most people.  There are also public holidays at the Christian festivals of Easter and Christmas.  Many people from other religions have settled here over the years and have established their own places of worship.
