Australia’s Founding Day is June 3. We advise you to travel on a visit within the summer and see many interesting places on the fifth continent. Australia is an amazing country located in the Southern Hemisphere. Australia covers an entire continent. Only here unique animals have survived, long extinct in other parts of the planet – kangaroos, platypuses, and echidna. Later, Australia was discovered by the Europeans. And that developed it.

The aborigines, an ancient people with complex beliefs and completely unusual ideas about the world, have survived to this day. This exoticism is combined in Australia with modern metropolises, great seaside resorts, luxury hotels, and excellent restaurants, great opportunities for diving, surfing, fishing, golf, and tennis.

In 1829, all of Australia became an English colony. In accordance with the Westminster Statute, adopted in 1931 (and approved in 1942),
