The Commonwealth of Australia is a country in the Southern Hemisphere and is the world's smallest continent and the largest island with a number of smaller islands in the Southern, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Australia's neighbouring countries are Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia to the north-east, and New Zealand to the south-east.more...
The continent of Australia has been inhabited for over 40,000 years by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. After many visits by European explorers and merchants from the 17th century and onwards, the eastern half of the continent was claimed by the British in 1770, and officially settled as the penal colony of New South Wales on 26 January 1788. As the population grew and new areas were explored, another five largely self-governing Crown Colonies were successively established over the course of the 19th century.
On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated and the Commonwealth of Australia was formed. Since federation, Australia has kept a stable liberal democratic political system and remains a Commonwealth Realm. The current population of around Australia is around 20.4 million and is concentrated mainly in the coastal cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
Amazing gentlemen's sport. Australia is overrated and sucks at it, while Sri Lanka kicks ass.
Muttia Muralitharan is the best bowler in cricket. Shane Warne looks like a rusty gate compared to Murali when he bowls.
North of the Southern Ocean, and situated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Australia is the world's smallest continent and largest island.more...
Isolated from other countries, we have a diverse variety of fauna and wildlife that can be found nowhere else in the world. Our unique array of animals (koalas, penguins and kangaroos in particular) attract hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, as do our brilliant beaches, our stunning mountain ranges, crystalline blue waters and harsh beauty of the Australian outback. (Outback = desert for all you uneducated cretins).
We have the world's largest coral reef (the Great Barrier Reef), the world's largest monolith (Uluru, formerly known as Ayre's Rock), and we have the world's largest Uranium depostis, as well as major deposits of copper, iron, coal, oil and natural gas.
Yes, we have an accent, though compared to what you hear on movies such as Crocodile Dundee, our accents are definitely not that strong. The Eastern accent is stronger than the accent of Aussies that live on the West Coast.
Our weather is awesome. Winter isn't too cold...

Scores vary, but in this part of Australia, runs are awarded for drinks consumed as follows:
* 20 runs for a standard drink (pot or basic spirit)
* 30 runs for a middy, tinny or stubby
* 40 runs for a pint
A wicket is lost every time the player takes a piss.
The object is simple - score the most 'runs' before your side is bowled out.
Scoring generally follows the pattern of large opening and top order partnerships, followed by a late-middle and lower order collapse.
Parking the tiger is usually equivalent to a declaration, though if the player continues and has wickets in hand, it counts as a hat-trick.
Last week I knocked up 9-500 playing the cricket drinking game.
Australia is the best country, island and continent in the world. We're one of a kind.
Located in the Pacific Rim, Australia has been around for ages-50,000 years approx. First inhabited by Aboriginals, then a long time later-1770- the British discovered this land and used it as a penal colony. However there has been some debate that the Dutch discovered it in the 1600s.
Australians are mad about sport, especially cricket and Australian Rules Football, and we don't really give a sh*t about much, for example the Cronulla Race Riots stopped because the Ashes Test Cricket Series was on. This laid back lifestyle is partly due to the cultural diversity and small population.
Out of Australia's 21 million people, over half live on the East Coast. Canberra is the capital, and Sydney is the most populous city, with 4.5 million people in the greater Sydney area.
I, personally, love the Central Coast of New South Wales, because it has great beaches, a great lifestyle, and rainforests about 20 minutes up the road.
Australia kicks arse.
Sure, you go to Europe and America and you think 'wow, this is cool', then you come home to Australia, have a beer, and fire up a Barbecue and think 'but I wouldn't trade this for THE WORLD'
