With a surface area making it the 6th largest country in the world, Australia's borders are enclosed by the magnificent Pacific and Indian ocean. This huge island's natural scenery is absolutely breathtaking, and is home to a myriad of different animals and plants. It's safe to say Australia is a wonderful, unique and vibrant country with a stunning landscape.
The 24 million inhabitants primarily live along on the coast line, so their daily lives and routines revolve around the beach. Australians are famous for their enthusiasm for the outdoors and their deep-rooted adoration of sports. The Australian life would, of course, be incomplete without dozens of barbecues with friends and neighbours. What's not to love?
