Môn Tiếng Anh Lớp 9 Is Australia the world’s largest island or its smallest continent? Actually, it’s both. In fact, Australia is the only country that is also a continent. Although roughly the size of the United States mainland, Australia has a population of about 16.5 million people. That makes this island nation one of the least densely populated countries.
What ethnic groups make up the Australia population? The majority of Australians are of English, Irish, Italian, Greek, Dutch, and Polish descent. However, over the past 50 years some four million people from more than 120 countries have made Australia their home. This includes a large number of Asian and African immigrants.
In addition to being the smallest, Australia is also the driest inhabited continent. Lush green pastures may be typical in sheep farming areas. However, much of the land, particularly in the Outback, is so arid that people are unable to live on it in its undeveloped state. That explains why most Australians live in metropolitan areas, many of which line the coast, and why Australia is considered one of the world’s more urbanized countries.
