Australia (in inglese "Australia", [əˈstɹæɪljə] secondo la pronuncia locale), ufficialmente il Commonwealth dell'Australia, è il sesto Paese del mondo per estensione (7.617.930 km²), il più grande dell'Oceania e dell'intera Australasia. Ha una popolazione di circa 23 milioni di abitanti..
Il paese si trova nell'Emisfero australe, ed è circondato dall'Oceano Indiano, a Ovest e Sud, e dal Pacifico a est.
È formata dal "Mainland", ossia la parte continentale o l'isola principale, la Tasmania e altre isole minori dette "Terre remote", quali le Isole Cocos e Keeling, l'isola Christmas (o isola del Natale), l'isola Norfolk, l'isola di Lord Howe, l'isola Macquarie (ritenuta parte della Tasmania) e l'isola Heard. Canberra reclama anche il Territorio antartico australiano con le sue basi.
Popolata dagli aborigeni per più di 40.000 anni, è stata colonizzata dagli inglesi a partire dal XVIII secolo. Gli australiani, che chiamano se stessi "aussie", sono un popolo multietnico, annoverando non solo aborigeni ed europei, ma anche asiatici, americani e africani. (fonte: Wikipedia)
