Country Introduction:

Australia is located in the Southern Hemisphere and is the sixth-largest country in the world by total area. Australia ranks highly in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, and education. The world's largest coral reef, The Great Barrier Reef, is off of the north-east Australian coast and is so large it can be seen from outer space.
