Australia is a country surrounded by the Indian and
Australia is made up of six states and two territories.
The state of Tasmania is an island that is located
to the south of the Australian mainland.
Australia’s population in 2022 is estimated
to be almost 26 million people. The population is
heavily concentrated on the east coast regions of
Australia. Despite this, Australia is one of the most
sparsely populated countries in the world.
Australia has many natural wonders including The Great
Barrier Reef, which is the world’s largest coral
reef and is situated off the north-east coastline.
The tallest mountain on mainland Australia is Mt Kosciuszko,
sitting at 2 228 metres above sea level, and is part
of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales. Lake Eyre,
when completely full, it is the largest lake in Australia
however it also has the lowest natural point in Australia
at 15 metres below sea level. One of the most recognisable
natural landmarks in Australia is Uluru, a large sandstone
formation in the centre of Australia. This site is
one of the most important indigenous sites in Australia.
Australia is considered a wealthy country, and in
2018 became the country with the highest average wealth
in the world. Despite this Australia has among the
highest house prices and some of the highest household
debt levels in the world. Australia is very rich in
natural resources, and is a major exporter of agricultural
products (wheat and wool), minerals (iron-ore and
gold) and energy (natural gas and coal). Our largest
export markets are Japan, China, United States of
America, South Korea and New Zealand. Surprisingly
in Australia the main agricultural products produced
are sugar cane, wheat and barley, however cattle,
for both export and domestic meat, generates the most
Australia is the sixth largest country in the world
and is the oldest, flattest and driest continent.
The landscapes and climates vary including deserts
in the centre, tropical rainforests in the north-east,
and mountain ranges in the south-east.
Indigenous Australians have inhabited Australia for
approximately 65 000 years. European exploration of
Australia began in the early 17th century, and in
1770 Australia’s eastern coast was claimed by
Great Britain. Settlement throughout the colony of
New South Wales began on 26th January 1788, and this
population grew steadily through the decades. By the
1850’s most of the continent had been explored
and an additional five self-governing colonies had
been established. On the 1st January 1901 the six
colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia.
