Greetings Usually a simple 'G'day' or 'Howzitgoin?' suffices. Shake hands with men or women when meeting for the first time. Most Australians expect a firm handshake with eye contact. However, when visiting an Aboriginal community this can be seen as overbearing. Here, a soft clasp with little arm movement and virtually no eye contact can be expected. The best advice is to take it as it comes and respond in like manner.
Shout Australians like to take it in turn to buy (shout) a round of drinks for the group and everyone is expected to take part.
Alcohol Check whether alcohol rules apply when visiting a community. You may be breaking the law even with unopened bottles in your vehicle.
