Great Barrier ReefAustralia is an Island continent. It is the smallest continent and the sixth largest country in the world.
It is divided into six States: Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales, Western Australia, Tasmania and two Territories: Northern Territory and Capital Territory.
The arrival of immigrants, first from Europe and more recently from Asia, Africa and South America, has changed Australia in many ways. These people have introduced new customs, varied festivals, cultural events and cuisines, and have contributed in many other ways to the lifestyle Australians now enjoy.
Australia's indigenous population, made up of both Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders, is the world's most ancient, living culture.
At least 40,000 years old, it continues to evolve, reflecting the lives and attitudes of indigenous people today.
You will find Australians enjoy good health and a high standard of living are friendly and welcoming to all visitors.
