Australia may be the world’s smallest continent, but it is the largest island at 7.69 million square kilometers (2.969 million square miles). It’s made up of six states and two territories and is the only continent that has a single national government. The Aboriginal people are believed to have thrived for 50,000 years on the continent, but modern immigration didn’t start until about 200 years ago. The result is a culturally diverse society with different linguistic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. Many of Australia’s native plants and wildlife can only be found on this amazing continent, like the koala, dingo, wallaby, kangaroo, and platypus. A visit to Australia is like no place else on Earth.
New Zealand is comprised of two main islands, North Island (Te Ika-a-Maui) and South Island (Te Waipounamu), and several smaller islands. It is believed that the first settlers, the Maori, came to the islands over 1,000 years ago from a group of islands in Polynesia in the South Pacific Ocean. Because of its geographic isolation for millions of years, New Zealand has developed unique species of wildlife, flora and fungi. Although it is a relatively small country New Zealand has a lot to offer anyone who visits.
