Australia

Australia Postcards

Officially Australia is known as the Commonwealth of Australia and is a sovereign country including the Australian continent, Tasmania and several smaller islands. With a population exceeding 25,000,000 people, Australia is the 6th largest country in the world and is the largest country in Oceania. The main language spoken is English

Around 60,000 years before being discovered by the Dutch in the early years of the 17th century, the country was populated by the indigenous Aboriginal people. Australia has a landmass of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi).

Great Britain used to deport criminals to New South Wales as punishment, a move I think may have benefitted the criminals as Australia is now such a beautiful place to live being entirely in the Southern Hemisphere. Great climate and economy offer a great standard of living for many. For more detailed information about Australia
