Australia is a land of contrasts – from golden beaches to tropical rainforests, mountain ranges, vast farming lands and sparse deserts.


One of the oldest continents in the world, Australia is the only country to occupy an entire continent.


It is surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans and has many animals and plants that are unique on the planet, such as the world famous Kangaroo.
