Australian Facts
& Information

In this section you'll find information about Australia we hope you'll find interesting. For example, Great Britain has 3 times the population, yet Australia is over 30 times larger. To say we have lots of wide open spaces would be an understatement. On the other hand, we're not known for our tall mountains. Mt. Kosciusko, tallest mountain in Australia, is ranked 71st highest in the world.
