Australian government and population

Australia is formally ruled by King Charles III of the United Kingdom, but in practice the country is run by the Prime Minister. Thus, Australia is a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy, and is part of the British Commonwealth.

The country consists of six states, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia, and two territories: the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory. Australia has a large number of major cities, so it is no wonder that the majority of the population lives in cities. Australia’s major cities are Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, and the country’s capital is Canberra.

Australian nature offers its own experiences

Australia’s plants and wildlife have had the opportunity to evolve into something special because the island has long been isolated from other continents. Around the world, Australia is often known from a young age for its unique fauna: kangaroos, koalas and platypus are a source of interest from all corners of the globe. The eucalypts are particularly memorable.

Australia is also geographically different from many other continents, with three distinct climate zones: hot in the north, warm in the centre and temperate in the south. Thus, Australia’s terrain varies from tropical to desert in different parts of the country. In addition, its unique natural environment includes beautiful natural attractions such as Uluru (or Ayers Rock), the Great Barrier Reef and Tasmania.

Australia’s big cities offer culture and buzz

The country’s largest cities are on its east coast, but every state has interesting cities to add to your Australian journey. 


With a population almost the size of Finland, Sydney in New South Wales is an essential destination for many travellers to Australia. A visit to the beautiful Sydney Opera House and sunbathing on Bondi Beach are on the bucket list, and there’s plenty more to see and do in and around the city.

Melbourne and Hobart

Victoria is also home to Melbourne, a great destination for sports and culture enthusiasts, hosting tennis tournaments and Formula 1 races. It’s also a good place from which to visit Tasmania for a hike through the beautiful scenery or to experience the unique atmosphere of the capital Hobart.

Cairns and Brisbane

Queensland offers a wide range of experiences, from the hustle and bustle of the big city to the beaches and the tropics. The beautiful rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef are conveniently located close to the coast, and are easy to explore from many cities, including charming Cairns or bustling Brisbane.

Adelaide and Perth

South Australia’s Adelaide is often called the miniature Australia because of its diversity, and its wide range of activities and food and wine offerings make it easy for travellers to enjoy themselves. In Perth, Western Australia, you can enjoy art, beautiful beaches and river cruises.

Outback destinations let you experience authentic Australia

If your goal is to experience Australia’s wildlife in all its diversity, you should include a visit to the wilderness, or more commonly known as the outback. It covers more than 80 per cent of Australia’s land area, and in each state the experience is slightly different.

The most popular outback destinations tend to be concentrated around Australia’s natural attractions, and many travellers seeking an outback experience head to places like the Uluru or South Australia’s Pink Lakes.

Travel in comfort by car or train

If the aim of a trip to Australia is to see as much as possible, many people prefer to hire a car, as the varied scenery is easiest to take in at your own pace.

Train journeys are also one of the most popular ways to see as much of Australia as possible in comfort. Because of the long distances involved, the scenery can be enjoyed perfectly from the train. There are many route options.

Remember these things when planning a trip to Australia

Because Australia is located south of the equator, the seasons are the opposite of the northern hemisphere. Mid-summer in Australia is in January, which is why many people plan their trip to Australia at this time of year.

The size of Australia can be difficult to grasp, and travellers should bear in mind that distances are very long, so it’s a good idea to allow enough time for transit. It’s also worth getting used to the idea that it’s impossible to experience the whole of Australia in one trip – but is there anything better than planning a new trip as soon as you get home?
