Gigantic Australia



Another awesome postcard from Kristie in Australia. Australia is the 6th largest country in the world with a total land size of 7 692 024 square kilometers. I realised that it is a huge country but taking into account all these countries can fit into Australia makes it seem so much bigger in my mind. France, Hong Kong, Italy, Portugal, Singapore, Germany, Ecuador, Japan, West Malaysia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Romania, East Timor, Thailand South Korea, Austria, Albania, Taiwan, Cambodia, Greece, Sri Lanka, Denmark and my own home country of South Africa can all comfortably fit within its borders. That makes one realise why this country with a mere population of 23.2 million has one of the lowest population densities in the world. With only 2.8 people per square kilometer, it’s extremely low. Considering that the other countries have a combined population of over 750 million people, one can see just how low it is. Thanks Kristie!
