Australia is the only country that has a whole continent to itself. World famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces (beaches, deserts and “the bush” or “the Outback”), Australia is ironically one of the world’s most highly urbanised countries and is well known for the cosmopolitan attractions of its globally significant cities, such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart and the Australian capital city Canberra. Australia is also a major tourist destination, and is one of the world’s wealthiest countries.
The country is renowned worldwide for its vast, untouched landscape and its unique culture. Don’t worry about your money, there are many cheap hotels suitable for you in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
