Hail the big country called Australia!
Here I dropped some few lines about this beautiful place:
- Commonwealth of Australia is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands.
- It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area.
- The neighboring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.
- Australia's capital is Canberra and its largest urban area is Sydney City.
