Australia, and its land area of 7,617,930 km square, is found in the Indo-Australian plate. Surrounded by Indians and the Pacific Ocean, it’s separated from Asia by the Arafura and Timor Sea. The world’s smallest continent and yet the sixth largest country in total area, Australia (due to its size and isolation) is often called the “island continent”. Indeed, it’s sometimes regarded as the largest island in the world.
Australia has 34,218 km of coastline (excluding all islands), and claims an extensive exclusive economic zone of 8,148,250 km sq. This exclusive economic zone does not include the Australian Antarctic Territory.
The Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef in the world, is a short distance from the northeast coast and extends over 2000 km. Mount Augustus, claimed to be the largest monolith in the world, is located in Western Australia. At 2228 meters is Mount Kosciuszko on the Great Dividing Range, the highest mountain on the Australian continent, but Mawson Peak on the remote Australian territory of Heard Island is higher at 2745 meters.
Australia is the flattest continent, with the oldest and least fertile soil (or semi-arid desert) known as the Outback is by far the greater part of the earth. The driest inhabited continent, its southeast corner and southwest have a temperate climate. The population density of Australia is 2.8 inhabitants per square kilometer, which is among the lowest in the world, although much of the population lives along the temperate south-eastern coast.
