World's Smallest Continent lays between the Pacific and Indian Ocean. Yes, you guessed it, it's down under, better known as Australia. The biggest city in Australia is Sydney, but it's not the capital as many think, the real capital of Australia is Canberra.

Australia was a former colony of England, and was used as a prison island, various criminals have been sent from England to Australia as punishment for their crimes.

Australia is a beautiful country with a lot of diversity and different sorts of wild animals that only appear in Australia like the famous kangaroo and koala, which are the proud symbols of Australia. Australia mainly exists out of dry land and deserts, called the 'bush'. This is why big cities are located close to the coasts.
