Really? Compare living in: Hobart / Cairns / Gold Coast / Mount Isa / Broome / inner Melbourne or Sydney / Nimbin / Alice Springs. They're all very different experiences.

Well living in different towns is going to give different experiences. The US has got more towns, so a greater range of experiences.

Diversity is a different concept from quantity, though. A lot of towns and cities can be very similar from a lifestyle and cultural perspective.

In Australia, for example, Albury and Wadonga are both regional centres located in two different states, but are essentially exactly the same from a lifestyle and cultural perspective. But compare either to a somewhere like Townsville in Queensland with its tropical way of doing things and large Torres Strait Islander population, or tropical Darwin with its large South East Asian influence, and in terms of lifestyle and cultural mix of the population, they're totally different. Comparing either to an Outback mining town like Broken Hill is also an apples to oranges comparison.

In terms of broad distinct groupings: Native American and Inuit. Of course when you break that down into individual tribes, clans or nations the number is a lot higher, but that is also the case for both Canada and Australia.

For Australia the broad groups are Tasmanian Aboriginal, mainland Aboriginal ( Tasmania was separated from the mainland by rising sea levels over 10,000 years ago) and Torres Strait islander. They're not part of the same cultural continuum. Of course, in terms of individual language and tribal groups, the number would be over 300.

Just realised I forgot about the Hawaiian population....

Much higher share of immigrants than the US. Also much more diverse comparing to the US where every 4th foreign born person is from Mexico.

In linguistic terms also very diverse just like USA. Regional diversity can not compare with american one, I will give you that

In it's large cities yes. Are you suggesting that Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver are not diverse? It may not have as many diverse cities or as many Native American cultural groups but that doesn't mean it's not diverse at all.
