Australia is world famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces, its beaches, deserts, "the bush", and "the Outback".
Australia is one of the world's most highly urbanised countries; it is well known for the attractions of its large
cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth. Australia is the sixth-largest country by land area. Australia
is bordered to the west by the Indian Ocean, and to the east by the South Pacific Ocean. The Tasman Sea lies to the
southeast, separating it from New Zealand, while the Coral Sea lies to the northeast. Papua New Guinea, East Timor and
Indonesia are Australia's northern neighbours, separated from Australia by the Arafura Sea and the Timor Sea.
As a large island a wide variation of climates are found across Australia.
It is not completely hot
and sun-kissed, as stereotypes would suggest. There are regions that can be quite cool and wet.
