About Australia
Covering a total area of 7.69 million square kilometres, mainland Australia is the world's largest island - but smallest continent. That said, Australia is big - in distance, the continent stretches about 3700 kilometres from north to south and 4000 kilometres from east to west, making it the sixth-largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States and Brazil. Because it stretches through numerous climate zones - from tropical to temperate - Australia offers a diversity of environments, scenery and climatic conditions rarely found elsewhere in a single destination. Whatever your areas of interest - sightseeing, natural attractions, historical places, outdoor activities - chances are you can see it or do it somewhere in Australia.
