Where is Australia located?

On the map


Among all the states that exist on the globe, only one occupies a whole continent. And this state is Australia. It is as if cut off from the rest of the world. We will understand in more detail where is Australia.

Australia location

Australia is located in the southern hemisphere. On the world map, it can be found in the lower right corner, although it is interesting that the Australians themselves issue their maps, on which Australia is in the center of the world.

The Australian Union (as the official state is called), as we have said, occupies a whole continent, as well as islands in the Pacific and Indian oceans. The most famous of them is the island of Tasmania.

Australia is washed by the waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the air currents of which form an uneven climate in the territory of the continent. In Australia, there are arid areas, mostly deserts. There are also areas where there is a lot of rain.But the most favorable site remains the south-east of the country, whose climate is similar to the Mediterranean.

Despite such climatic features and seemingly limited territory for doing business, Australia is still a state with a fairly high standard of living and is among the countries whose GDP per capita has good indicators.
