Destination Australia

Australia is an island continent occupied by a single country. Located in the Southern Hemisphere between Africa and South America this continent spans many climatic zones from tropical to sub-alpine.

Around the same size as the US mainland, Australia has a population of only 25 million people making it one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. this means there are vast areas wilderness with most of it being famously called, 'The Outback'. Paradoxically, Australia is one of the world's most urbanized societies with a number of iconic modern cities liked Sydney and Melbourne.

Australia also enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the world and coupled with a low crime rate, it is an attractive country for immigration and travellers alike. Due to the country's isolation and strict immigration laws, Australia has managed to preserve its unique western culture which exists alongside a much more ancient Aboriginal culture.
