Australia

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world but it has the world’s lowest population density with a mere two people sharing each square kilometre. Australia's biggest attraction is its stunningly natural beauty with more than 7,000 beaches and some of the most diverse landscapes you’ll find anywhere in the world.

The Aussie’s even have the world's longest continuous fence. The 'dingo fence', is six feet high and more than 5,000 kilometres in length. It’s designed to keep the sheep safe and the whingeing Poms out!

Golf is Australia's number one participant sport and more than 460,000 Aussies belong to a golf club. 1.3 million people or approximately 10% of the adult Australian population play golf. With more than 1,800 golf courses to choose from, the variety is staggering. Given the fact that this is such a huge country it’s quite amazing that the best Australian golf courses can be found in one small area of Melbourne, known simply as the Sand Belt.
