The only continent that is also an island and a country, Australia is the sixth-largest country by total area, in the world. Famous for its laid-back locals, incredible beaches and unique flora and fauna, Australia will also impress with world-class shopping, fine dining, and cultural experiences. Australia, although a young country, has a fascinating history. Colonised by the British in 1788, there is still much British influence in everyday life, however, combined with a strong multicultural population, and influence from indigenous Australians, the modern Australian has a unique cultural identity. Sport plays a large part in Australian life, with four football codes, swimming, surfing and cricket, popular sports to play or watch.
