According to the Australian Government's Geoscience website, the mainland area of Australia is 7 659 861 sq km, and the total land area (including 32 163 sq km for the islands) of Australia is 7 692 024 sq km.
It was Dirk Hartog who was the first European to land on the west coast of Australia.
Searching for a better life opportunity in a new land.
Willem Janzoon was an important person in Australia between 1550 and 1650. He was a Dutch explorer who first set foot on the land in 1606. He and others explored the land but did not make any settlements for over a hundred years.
Nobody discovered Australia in 1700. The first known European "discovery" of Australia occurred much earlier than this.Willem Jansz/Janszoon was a Dutchman who was seeking new trade routes and trade associates. He became the first recorded European to step foot on Australia's shores on the western shore of Cape York Peninsula, on 26 February 1606
It probably isn't a question of Britain "gaining control" of Australia so much as it was that England just put a bunch of people on ships and set them ashore on the land down under. That made Australia a de facto British colony. The native Australians didn't complain too much, and certainly hadn't the numbers or the power to stop things, even if they did. This happened before, this colonization. What's a good example of that? Big country. Lots of room to develop. Stunning store of natural resources. Oh, yes! America!
Australia has a land area of 7,686,850 sq km.

The land of Australia is what is the real Oz.Specifically, Oz is a nickname for the country and continent of Australia. Another much beloved nickname is the land down under. Still another nickname is the land of the glowing, thundering Aussies.
According to a 2009 World Bank report, Australia's arable land (that is, how much land is good for growing crops) makes up 6.14% of the total land on the continent.
Australia is made of land, it is a continent. Most of Australia is dry desert land.
None of it is unlivable. However, about two-thirds of the continent would not support even a sparse population by normal standards. Approximately 10 % of Australia is inhabited. Although much of the land is used for livestock and farming, this land is not actually inhabited. There are vast tracts of land which are completely isolated from any settlement.
so pretty much, Australia isn't just the land for one thing. to answer this question, I'd ask, what do people from other nations think of when they hear Australia. to me, they'd think about our wildlife (kangaroo's, koala's ect.) they think about Ayers rock, Melbourne's alley ways, Sydney harbour bridge and opera house, Bondi beach. they is so much more, so to me, Australia is the land of difference.
Australia is a land area; it is a continent.
