At the bottom of the map is a chunk of land that we consider as the seventh continent. Australia, a country with diverse landscapes, abundant natural beauty and some of the most amazing people makes for a great holiday destination. Australia has its roots in the Latin word “Terra Australis” meaning Southern land. This southern land is popular amongst most visitors as a country for endless adventures and easy living.
Called as Lucky Country by the locals, Australia is as big as the USA in size but has the lowest country population density on earth. Its geography is vivid and stunning at the same time. Mostly arid and flat, Australia’s famed dessert the Outback is home to some of the nation’s best scenery as well as wildlife. Due to the harsher conditions of the arid land, most of the country’s population lives within 20 Kms from the coast facilitating what is now a thriving beach culture. Australia experiences seasons opposite to those in the Northern Hemisphere. Winters are from June to August and summers start from December and goes on till February.
