Australia, location-wise, belongs to Oceania, the continent between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean. Australia is the world’s smallest continent but sixth-largest country; the largest country in Oceania, the largest country entirely in the Southern Hemisphere, and the largest country without land borders; the only continent without glaciers; population concentrated along the eastern and southeastern coasts; the invigorating sea breeze known as the “Fremantle Doctor” affects the city of Perth on the west coast and is one of the most consistent winds in the world.
Australia’s area is in comparison slightly smaller than the US contiguous 48 states.
