Australia: Travel/Tourist Information Guide

Australia is the world's 6th largest country with a population of approximately 20 million, but the smallest continent and is officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia. The current currency of Australia is called the AUD or Australian Dollar and the main language spoken is English. The weather in Australia is pretty pleasant throughout the year. The spring and summer months are from September to February, while the autumn and winters months run from march through August. Australia is a Western capitalist economy that seem to have avoided recent recessions in the Northern Hemisphere making it less of a bargain than it once was.
