Australia is a huge country. Australia is the planet's sixth largest country after Russis, Canada, China, the USA, and Brazil. At 7,692,024 km2, it accounts for just 5 % of the world's land area of 149,450,000 km2, and although it is the smallest continental land mass, it is the world's largest island.
Australia's size gives it a wide variety of landscapes, with subtropical rain forests in the north-east, mountain ranges in the south-east, south-west and east areas and a dry desert in its centre.
