Because of its island character and its late discovery by Europeans (17th century), Australia retains a unique nature symbolised by the kangaroo, the national animal. Its immensely large territory covers more than 7,500,000 km² and includes nearly 35,000 km of coastline bordering the Southern, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Inland, this continent country will make you feel alone in the world, as 90% of its population lives in urban areas and mostly on the coast.
