Australia is a vast, diverse country with a rich and varied landscape, from tropical rainforests to arid deserts and rugged coastlines. Australia is also home to citizens from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, including Indigenous Australians and more recent migrants. The Australian landscape no doubt has an impact on the daily occupations its citizens engage in and, similarly, has shaped the development of the occupational therapy profession. Occupational therapy in the Australian context is still a relatively young profession, first formally entering the health stage in the mid-1930s.
