About Australia

Australia is the largest country in Oceania, and is the sixth largest country in the world. It’s the smallest continent on Earth, but it’s also too large to be an island.

The country of Australia is situated between the Indian Ocean and South Pacific Ocean. Australia is close to New Zealand in the southeast. Finally in the north, we have the countries of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

Australia is primarily low plateau with deserts, and is the only continent without any glaciers. In fact, the middle of Australia has practically no one living inside of it because a large part of it is desert. Australia’s highest point Mount Kosciuszko at 2,228 m is situated in the southeast of the country.
