Australia is the only country in the world that is also a continent. It is the sixth large country and the smallest continent. Australia lies between the South Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. It is situated in the south-west of North America and in the southeast of mainland Asia.
The official name is Commonwealth of Australia. Its area is about 8,000,000 square km. The population of Australia is about 20 mln. 70 per cent of the population lives in its 10 largest cities. Australia is the flattest continent after Antarctica. It is also the world’s driest continent.
Canberra is the capital of Australia. It is not a biggest city. Sidney and Melbourne are much bigger. Captain James Cook discovered Australia in 1770. He was sent to discover the huge land that many people believed was south of the equator. He landed south of present day Sydney in New South Wales. He claimed this part of the land for the King of England.
The Aborigines are the Australian natives that had been living there for thousands of years before the first Europeans came to Australia in the 1600s. The Aborigines, the Australian natives, represent about 1.5 per cent of the population.

The capital of the country is Canberra, this city became the capital in 1927. It is a member of the Commonwealth headed by the British Queen. The official language is English. The largest cities are Sidney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. The Commonwealth of Australia is a self-government federal state. It has six states: new south Wales, Victoria, Queens land, south Australia, western Australia and two internal territories.
The flag of Australia is the only one to fly over a whole continent. The small Union Jack represents the historical link with Britain, the large seven-pointed star represents the six States and Territories, and the small stars from the Southern Cross – a prominent feature of the southern hemisphere night sky.
Australia's coat of arms – the official emblem of the Australian Government – was granted by George V in 1912. In 1984 Australia officially adopted green and gold as its national colors. In 1956 the Olympic Games were held in Melbourne. In the year 2000 Australia was host the Olympics in Sydney.

Australia’s best-known animals are the kangaroo, the koala and the dingo (a wild dog). There are 50 species of kangaroo. Some stand as tall as a man and some are as small as a cat. They can often be seen in many of the forests and parks. The koala is the best loved of all Australian animals. About 400 species of birds in Australia are found nowhere else in the world.

Text 4 The Climate of Australia
Australian climate is dry and warm. Australia is situated in the Southern Hemisphere and that is why it has summer when we have winter. January is the hottest month in Australia. The whole central part of the country is dry; it never rains, there are no large rivers and no water there.
Summer starts in December (ends in February), autumn in March (ends in May), winter in June (ends in August) and spring in September (ends in November).
The country occupies the whole continent, so the climate is different in different regions of the country. The southern states are popular during the summer months, but the best time to visit is probably the seasons of spring or autumn when the weather in the south is mild. Average annual temperatures vary from about 27 °C in the north of the continent to 13 °C in the south. Floods and cyclones are rather common along the coast of the continent.
Hemisphere- полушарие, average- средний, cyclone- циклон, flood-наводнение, coast- побережье, common-обычный.
