Australia is the only country in the world that covers an entire continent. One-third of Australia is desert. This desert area of scorching temperatures, little water and almost no vegetation is called the outback. Most of the people, however live in the southwest and southeast part of Australia where the climate is more comfortable.

 

Australia is a commonwealth of the United Kingdom and the head of state is the British monarch.

 

The capital of Australia is Canberra. Other major cities include Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth.
