and the smallest continent in the world! Its capital city is Canberra, but its
largest city is Sydney. Most people live near the sea, on the coast in the south

because the Australian continent separated from the rest of the world millions
of years ago.

It is about 60 million years old!! Uluru
(or : "Ayers Rock" in its White people's name) is visited by many
tourists every year. This rock is sacred to Aborigenes.
