Australia’s climate is generally delightful and mild. Most of the country receives more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year!
Being the biggest continent, Australia is characterized by various weather conditions, depending on its latitude. When it’s winter in Europe and Latin America, it’s summer south of the equator.
There are four seasons across most of Australia, with the tropical north experiencing a wet and dry season. Summer runs from December to March (average temperature 29°C), autumn throughout March to May, winter runs from June to August (average 13°C), and spring from September to November.
The demography of Australia covers basic statistics, most populous cities, ethnicity, and religion. The population of Australia is estimated to be 25,760,500 as of 9 March 2021. Australia is the 52nd most populous country in the world and the most populous Oceanian country. Its population is concentrated mainly in urban areas and expect to exceed 28 million by 2030.
Australia’s population has grown from an estimated population of between 300,000 and 1,000,000 Indigenous Australians at the time of British colonization in 1788 due to numerous immigration waves during the period since.
Australia: people and culture
Australia is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse nations. Nearly a quarter of the people who live in Australia were born in other countries. Many come from India, The United Kingdom, and other European countries and Vietnam, North Africa, and the Middle East.
Australia’s warm, sunny climate and abundance of open spaces give the population a love of the outdoors. The people are also passionate about a different sport, including swimming, surfing, sailing, tennis, soccer, cricket, rugby, and their invention – Australian rules football!
Australia: geography and landscape
Australia is one of the largest countries on Earth and the only country that covers an entire continent. Although it is rich in natural resources and has much fertile land, more than one-third of Australia is desert.
In most Australian cities and farms locating in the southwest and southeast areas, the climate is comfortable. The famous outback (remote rural regions) contains the country’s largest deserts, where there are scorching temperatures, little water, and almost no vegetation. In the northeast, there are dense rainforests where lush vegetation grows.
Running around the eastern and south-eastern edge of Australia is the Great Dividing Range. This 3,700-kilometre stretch of mountain sends water down into Australia’s most important rivers and the Great Artesian Basin, the world’s largest groundwater source.
