Did you know that Australia is the sixth largest country in the world? The Kimberley region in Westen Australia alone is three times the size of England and Australia's largest property is the same size of Belgium. Yep that's right... there is an Aussie farmer out there that owns a peice of land the same size as an entire country! Because the nation is SO BIG, Australia's landscape is very diverse, allowing you to stroll upon the white sands of an untouched beach one day, and making your way through the eerily red sands of the desert the next. Yes that's right - Australia is one of the strangest places on Earth!

It is home to world's largest sand island, Fraser Island, which is roaming with Dingos.
