Map Australia / Oceania Map - Country Information
Australia is the smallest continent in terms of size and population. However, it is also a country and by that measure one of the largest. However, its roughly 23 million inhabitants rank it among the lower end of the people per square kilometer scale. For at least 40,000 years before any European settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians. Today, many of them live as outcasts and have lost most of their traditional way of life due to the aggressive colonization by other nations, mainly Great Britain. Though being small in terms of population Australia ranks among the richest nations in the world. Its size and natural resources guarantee a high standard of living for the whole population. The majority of the population (90%) lives along the coast line, mainly in the south and east, in major cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane or Perth. Australia is also quite famous for its deadly animals (snakes, spiders, crocodiles, jelly fish). Australians enjoy sports played in the Common Wealth but not much anywhere else (e.g. Cricket, Rugby, Australian Rules Football or Netball).
