Australia is the smallest continent globally, covering only 3 million square miles. Despite its small size, Australia is filled with great activities and sights. Australia is home to stunning oceans, amazing wildlife, beautiful landscapes and rich history. Australia has many things to offer, no matter what your reason is. These facts should inspire you to travel to Australia.

Here are some fun facts about Australia

Australia is Much Bigger than You Think

It is important to consider Australia’s huge size when planning your trip. It is slightly larger than the USA’s three million square miles. Australia is the sixth-largest country in the world, after Russia and Canada.

The country has three types of biomes: desert, grasslands and forests. These biomes can be further broken down into temperate and tropical grasslands, tropical, temperate, and temperate forests, as well as Mediterranean woodlands. Ten deserts are found in Australia’s inland reaches. These are where you will find the majority of infrastructure and major cities. This is the area where 90% of Australia’s population lives.

Australia has been home to people for 65,000 years.

However, Willem Janszoon was not the first to arrive in Australia when he arrived in 1606. Australia’s Aboriginal population was already well-established in every part of the continent.

These traditions, spirituality, music, and artistic expression, are some of the oldest surviving in human history. These original Australian inhabitants can be found at the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Melbourne and the Aboriginal Museum in Sydney.

The National Museum also remembers these interesting people of Australia, which is the source of many historical facts about Australia.

Australia has a huge wine route.

Australia is not the only country you might think of when you want to visit lush wine regions. The country is home to over 60 wine-growing areas. They produce more than a trillion bottles each year. It was an amazing experience to visit the Barossa valley wine region. Check out this tour that takes you to four world-class wineries and includes lunch.

This region offers a variety of activities, including 4WD adventures and steam train rides. There are many delicious options along the way, including cheese, charcuterie, and picnic eat.

Most of Australia’s wineries are located between Victoria and New South Wales. You can enjoy Pinot Noir in Victoria, while Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are produced in New South Wales.

Chardonnay and Semillon are just a few of the other varieties you will encounter on your journey. Several Australian wines won top marks at the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards. They were awarded 17 platinum medals, six Best In Show awards, and seven other prizes.

Uluru Stretches For 15 Miles Underground

Uluru is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most famous sights. It is a must-visit destination on your trip. It is UNESCO’s most popular spot for tours and other activities. The whole Uluru area is sacred to native Australians. It belongs to the Anangu tribe.

This is a great way to see this beautiful place. You can take a sunrise or sunset tour, which includes breakfast and a barbecue. The rock glows red at dusk as the sun sinks below the horizon. This landmark 600 million years old is more than meets the eye.

Geological studies show that the rock formation can be seen for up to 15 miles. It curves down and then up to join the Olgas, an additional standout geological feature in Australia.

Australia has the longest war memorial in the world.

The Great Ocean Road, which runs 150 miles long, is dedicated to all the service members of the country who lost their lives during World War I. This important thoroughfare runs along Australia’s southern coast, from Torquay to Allansford at Warrnambool.
