When people think of Australia, they see wide open spaces of outback bush, kangaroos, koalas, and clean air and water. The country is a big as you can imagine. There are many roads to discover Australia. Of course there are also deadly insects and sharks, but don’t let them stop you from coming to this amazing country. Australia has much more to offer than the usual expectations. Many international students are choosing to study in Australia because of its friendly, laid-back nature, excellent education system, and high standard of living. 

Being the oldest, flattestand driest inhabited continent, with the least fertile soils, Australia has a landmass of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi). A megadiverse country, its size gives it a wide variety of landscapes, with deserts in the centre, tropical rainforests in the north-east and mountain ranges in the south-east. Its population density, 2.8 inhabitants per square kilometre, remains among the lowest in the world. 

Besides this, Australia is a highly developed country, with the world's 14th-largest economy. It has a high-income economy, with the world's tenth-highest per capita income. Australia generates its income from various sources including mining-related exports, telecommunications, banking, and manufacturing.
