Travel Australia: Trips and Tips
Covering a total area of 7.69 million square kilometres, mainland Australia is the world's largest island - but smallest continent. That said, Australia is big - in distance, the continent stretches about 3700 kilometres from north to south and 4000 kilometres from east to west, making it the sixth-largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States and Brazil.
Because it streches through numerous climate zones - from tropical to temperate - Australia offers a diversity of environments, scenery and climatic conditions rarely found elsewhere in a single destination. Whatever your areas of interest - sightseeing, natural attractions, historical places, outdoor activities - chances are you can see it or do it somewhere in Australia.
The Best of Australia: Destinations
Australia is a nation of car drivers and in our day to day lives,
we'd rather jump in the car to get from A to B ahead of any other mode
of transport available. This in part is because of the small
populations in many regional areas and the high cost of building
transport infrastructure there. Road is often the only means of access
to such places, therefore to get there you have to either go by coach
(if the locality is on a major transport route) or drive there in your
own (or hired) vehicle.
