Australia is by far the largest country in Oceania and one of the largest countries in the world. The capital of Australia is Canberra while Sydney is the largest city in the country. With an area of 7,692,024 square kilometres and just about 25 million inhabitants, Australia is one of the least densely populated areas in the world. However, a large number of tourists travel to Australia year in year out.

The country offers beautiful natural wonders to visit like the famous Great Barrier Reef, Alice Springs, Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kakadu National Park and Tasmania. Also, cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide are a good place to visit. Because of the large distances between places in the country, flying is usually the best option.
