Australia Map

It would take a few weeks to drive along the entire coastline of Australia. With over 34,000 km of coast, countless beaches surround Australia and some would never have had a human visitor. Over 60% of the population is found in the 5 biggest mainland capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Most of Australia’s population is found by the sea because of how hot most of the country is. With a dry climate and several inland deserts locals flock to the sea and it’s no wonder that surfing and sailing are 2 of Australian’s favourite pastimes. With a population density of fewer than 3 people for every square kilometer of land Australia is one of the remotest countries in the world.
