Australian society is regarded in the wider world as essentially British (or at any rate Anglo-Celtic), and until the mid-20th century that portrayal was fairly accurate. The ties to Britain and Ireland were scarcely affected by immigration from other sources until then, although local concentrations of Germans, Chinese, and other ethnic groups had been established in the 19th century. But the complex demographic textures in Australia at the beginning of the 21st century contrasted quite sharply with the bland homogeneity of the country for much of the 20th century. Although some nine-tenths of Australia's population is European in ancestry, more than one-fifth is foreign-born, and there is a small but important (and growing) Aboriginal population. Of those born overseas, about half were born in Europe; though by far the largest proportion of those are from the United Kingdom, there are also more than 200,000 Italians. Among the larger non-European groups are New Zealanders and Vietnamese. The growth in immigration, particularly Asian immigration (from China, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and the Philippines) beginning in the last decades of the 20th century, combined with a subsequent flow of refugees from the Balkans, has altered the cultural landscape, imbuing Australia with a cosmopolitanism that it lacked in the mid-20th century.
The persecution of and political indifference shown toward Aboriginal people failed to extinguish their culture; inevitably 「land rights」 became the rallying cry of a political movement accompanying a highly publicized revival of the Aboriginal community. A national referenm on Aboriginal rights held in 1967 agreed to the transfer of legislative power over Aboriginal affairs from the states to the federal government, and this accelerated the revival. The number of Australian Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders, though still only a tiny fraction of the total population, increased dramatically in the last decades of the 20th century, jumping from 115,000 in 1971 to some 410,000 in the 2001 census.
In numerical terms the most important Aboriginal concentrations are located in Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia, and Northern Territory. Until the later 1960s the Aboriginal population was not inaccurately described as being as rural as white Australia was urban. In the Outback, small numbers still lived in tribal societies and tried to maintain the traditional ways. Some were employed as highly skilled stockmen on the big stations (ranches), and welfare payments and charitable organizations supported others on mission stations and government reserves. From the 1970s and '80s the drift of Aboriginals to the towns and cities transformed the old patterns except in Northern Territory, where the rural distribution has remained predominant. Their migrations to the country towns have often left Aboriginal families as stranded 「fringe dwellers,」 a term with social as well as geographic connotations. In the larger centres, Aboriginal communities from widely differing backgrounds face innumerable hazards as they attempt to adjust to volatile urban politics. Perceptions of common grievances have encouraged a unity of purpose and a sense of solidarity between urban and rural groups.
The growth in the Aboriginal population has been exceeded by Australians born in Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, and the Philippines. By the early 21st century, about one-third of all new settler arrivals had been born in Asia. Huge expenditures have been made on Aboriginal affairs, to the chagrin of much larger minority groups who have received less international visibility. Official federal policy has been to encourage self-help and local autonomy while improving the provision of essential services and the climate of opportunity. Obstacles to progress have included resial prejudice and neglect in the white (i.e., European) community and the lingering consequences of the vicious circle of poverty, ignorance, and disease in which native peoples became entrapped after their earliest encounters with whites.
