Experience

Australia is the smallest continent in the world, covering an area of just over 7 million square kilometres. We are nearly the same size as the USA and is 32 times bigger than the UK.

 

We have eight states and territories and 8,222 islands surrounding the mainland. Our highest peak is Mt Kosciuszko in New South Wales at 2,228 metres and our lowest trough is Lake Eyre in South Australia at 15m below sea level.

 

Our population is approximately 22 million people and we have a diverse range of native flora and fauna, including a large number of the world’s most deadliest and venomous animals.

 

We have cities and towns, deserts, rivers and lakes, forests and mountains, big rocks and beaches.

 

We have a rich history that includes dinosaurs, Aboriginal people, European explorers, colonisation, convicts, migration, war, bush bandits and gold.

 

There are so many wonderful things to see and do in this beautiful country of ours: cities, festivals, markets and their history, exploring natural wonders and the Big Things, or even just staying still in the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen. The food, the culture, the land and the wildlife, they all play a part in adding colour to the masterpiece that is Our Naked Australia.
