AUSTRALIA IS THE SMALLEST CONTINENT in the world but also happens to be the world’s sixth-largest nation by area. While the British didn’t colonize Australia until the late 1700s, the indigenous Australian population has inhabited the landmass for over 40,000 years. With such a long history, there’s an encyclopedic amount of interesting information about the country.
Check out these 14 things you might not know about Australia and see for yourself. <IMG src="https://d36tnp772eyphs.cloudfront.net/assets/images/site/matador-logo-tiny-2017.png" alt="" title="">

4 Hello? Anybody there?
Due to sheer size and the uninhabitable desert climate dominating much of the continent, Australia is the ninth least-densely populated nation in the world and has by far the least-dense population of countries with over one million citizens. The country’s population density is 3.07 people per square kilometer.
