Wonderful Australia

Australia is a dream land for the wise and I'm delighted to write about this beautiful country today. Australia is a very big country and the world’s largest Island. It is the only continent governed as a single country. With the Capital Territory (ACT) located in Canberra, Australia is also a member state of the Commonwealth Nations.

The Australian society is made up of people from rich and diverse cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious backgrounds, and this is a defining feature of a truly modern Society. A vast percentage of Australians are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants who arrived during the past two hundred years from more than 200 countries. The most commonly spoken language in Australia is English.

In distance, the Australia 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. What a big land of opportunity for you and me.

Australia is sometimes informally referred to as an 'Island' continent, as it is surrounded by oceans. The ocean territory in Australia is also the third-largest in the world. It has the most urbanised and coast-dwelling populations in the world, with more than 80 per cent of residents living within 100 kilometres of the coastline. It is also the land of the Kangaroos.
Australia has six states and two territories. The states are New South Wales with Sydney as capital, Victoria with Melbourne as Capital, Queensland with Brisbane as Capital, South Australia with Adelaide as capital, Western Australia with Perth as Capital and Tasmania with Hobart as Capital.  The two territories are Canberra as the National Capital and the Northern Territory.                                               

I hope you find this useful. Join me on 'Easy path to Australia '.             

Bye! And remember, Migrate Safe!
