Australia: Travelling & Vacation
Australia is the only country that has a whole continent. The mainland is the largest island in the world and it is also the flattest country. Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It's about the same size as the 48 mainland states of the USA and 50 percent larger than Europe, but has the lowest population density in the world - only two people per square kilometer.
The Aborigines were the first inhabitants of the country and it is assumed that they arrived at least 50,000 years ago by boat from South East Asia. having arrived during the last ice age. When the European explorers arrived and thus the first settlements came, the Aborigines were reduced.
Many trips are needed to see the whole of Australia, hundreds of interesting sights and beautiful nature possibilities. It is not a country for a midweek break, the distances are far too great. Many travelers opt for a backpackers adventure or lifestyle when visiting Australia, but that does not mean that the cities are uninteresting. Rather the opposite, atmophere and life are buzzing in most cities.
The Australian culture is based on stories of Battlers, bushrangers and brave soldiers. Of sporting heroes, working heroes and plucky migrants. The variety of nature and a healthy dose of irony. Today Australia also defines itself by its Aboriginal heritage, as a vibrant mix of cultures, innovative ideas and a thriving arts scene. Well worth the time to travel to.
