Australia, also known as “the Land Down Under”, is a country roughly the size of Europe. All major cities are on the coast, surrounding the vast unpopulated desert wilderness called the Outback. The northern part of this continent has a tropical climate, with hot and humid summers, whereas the southern part is subtropical, with more distinct (temperature) changes between seasons.

When visiting, you’ll definitely see kangaroos (possibly more dead than alive ones) and the famous Sydney Opera House. Apart from that you should also check out Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the Great Barrier Reef.
