Many geographers and scientists now refer to six continents, where Europe and Asia are combined (because they’re one stable landmass). Most portion of Northern hemisphere is occupied by land i.e continent Asia Africa north America Europe and portion of southern hemisphere is occupied by south America and Australia but principally by water . A relatively small area of land in the northwestern a half of the nation lies in Europe whereas the rest is in Asia. Africa has the very best population development rate as all three subregions rising over 2% are in Africa.

Most Australians stay along the nation’s coasts, notably between Cairns and Adelaide. Sydney and Melbourne are the nation’s largest cities, and they’re each main, international metropolitan areas with cultural and historic landmarks that make them popular vacationer locations. The inside of the country is flat, barren and largely unpopulated — often known as the Outback — but it helps quite lots of animal and plant species that have adapted to the harsh setting. More than 80% of Australia’s mammals, landlocked fish and flowering crops are not discovered anywhere else on Earth. Hundreds of millions of years ago, today’s continents have been huddled in a giant landmass known as Pangea. So what’s the criteria that the Americas fill to be thought of two “continuous” continents that Australia does not?
And again, Australia’s Antarctic Territory (the largest territory on that continent in comparability with different countries’ territorial claims) is covered in glaciers. Sadly, Australia is and has been just an island for awhile now. It could be the largest land mass of, however nonetheless solely part of OCEANIA. It seems that to be a continent, an area must fulfill most of the unofficial standards above if it doesn’t fulfill all of it.
