Although Australia is a new country, it is a very old continent. Aboriginal people have lived in peace with their environment for over 40,000 years. All of that was to change when England first established Australia in 1788 and declared it a penal colony due to its overflowing jail population. Today, Australia is referred to as a “settler colony,” a phrase that refers to nations such as Australia, Australia, Canada, and the United States, which were colonized by the British and where indigenous (native) peoples were nearly wiped out. Australia is both a continent and an island, located between the Pacific and Indian seas in the southern hemisphere.It has a population of only 18 million people and is roughly the same size as the United States (minus Alaska). Eighty percent of the 18 million inhabitants reside in just 10 cities, all of which are located near the coastline. Sydney and Melbourne are by far the largest of these cities.
