No other country can be seen in two different ways, only Australia has that peculiarity. When people think of Oceania, they wonder if it is an impressive continent that appears on the map in the form of an island or if it is an island with continent proportions.
This image has been born from the ancient legends of the aborigines, which, acclimated and finely spun, have been interwoven with the stories of the settlers. Stories, tales and legends that have flourished in its peaceful forests, in the high mountains, in the inhospitable jungles, in the immeasurable deserts, in the unique fauna, in the amazing flora and in its paradisiac coasts.
Our country is a real paradise where you can find a wide variety of animals and native vegetation, such as kangaroo, koala or platypus. Despite having a large part of the desert territory, this country provides tourists with several natural parks and more than 700 lakes. And of course, it is essential to visit the Great Barrier Reef, the largest in the world!
