Main features of Australia
Because Australia is not just Sydney, it is kangaroos, it is koalas, it is dingoes, it is long afternoons of surfing on endless beaches, and it is much more than that…
- Australia is the sixth-largest country globally, only surpassed in square kilometres by Russia, Canada, the United States, China and Brazil.
- Australia is more than 3000 hours of sunlight a year.
- Australia is quality of life, one of the few places where the work-life balance is balanced … and with the highest minimum wage in the world!
- Australia is history and culture: from its aboriginal past to its time as a penal colony in the United Kingdom and, of course, its promising present in which it is positioned as a great exporter of culture thanks to groups such as Tame Impala, showcases of urban art like Melbourne or actors like Hugh Jackman or Chris Hemsworth.
- Australia is a metropolis like Sydney, it is urban-like Melbourne, it is a surfer like Gold Coast, and it is fishing villages with a magnetic charm like Byron Bay, but it is also desert and mountain.
- Australia has 19 UNESCO World Heritage sites, from natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef to historic buildings like the Jail at Cockatoo Island.
- Australia is home to thousands of species of animals and plants, many of them endemic and that you can only see here. It is a paradise for flora and fauna lovers!
But Australia is all that and much more. It is, possibly, the most unknown and wild place left on the planet, a unique experience for each new traveller. And you are about to discover it!
