Australia Unique Experiences
In keeping with its climate, Adelaide, capital of South Australia, has a Mediterranean ambience as it straddles the Torrens River; filled with churches, gardens, civic buildings, sidewalk cafes and a plethora of museums, galleries and festivals; catering to the culturally inclined. The city was originally laid out in 1836 by Colonel Light in a square mile (three sq km) grid of wide streets with gracious colonial architecture.
Australia is the sixth largest country in the world - more or less the same size as mainland USA. This vast land however also has the lowest population density in the world, with only two people per square kilometre. Australia is politically divided into six states and two territories, each one offering a different experience for the traveller.
