GEOGRAPHY
Named by its inhabitants The Land Down Under because it is located in the southern hemisphere, it's the sixth nation of the world.
It has an area of ​​about 7,703,429 square kilometers (an extension almost equal to that of the United States and Europe!) and it has only 20,109,000 inhabitants, equivalent to the number of Northern Italy!
An infinite land of contrasts, it is a country rich in diverse scenarios with each other, but united by an exceptional spectacle.

CLIMATE
Australia, has seasons reversed from us so the warmer months are December, January and February, while the coldest are June, July and August.
Called "the land of 7 seasons" by Aborigines it can be visited all year although the best period is from February to May, which corresponds to the end of their summer and early autumn with pleasant temperatures.
Also the climate naturally varies depending on the area.
In the north of the country it is tropical with a dry season from May to October, ideal for visiting Kakadu, the Kimberley and tropical forests of Queensland, and a rainy season from November to May, with high temperatures, high humidity and the possibility of cyclones; in fact many areas are closed to tourists. On the northern islands of the reef the rains are more frequent in the months of January and February.
On the east coast, from the southern islands of the Great Barrier Reef to Sydney, the rains are spread throughout the year with pleasant temperatures in all seasons.
The Outback has a dry desert climate with high temperature range and high temperatures especially from November to March (over 40 ° in Alice Springs and Ayers Rock), where they flies become annoying.
Autumn is very nice especially in Canberra and in the Victorian Alps, where, between June and October, there is the ski season with the best facilities that also found in New South Wales and Tasmania.
The southern regions have a climate similar to our Mediterranean, although during the Australian winter in the cities that are not facing the coast the temperatures can reach fairly cold. Even if the weather is not favorable, we recommend a visit to Kangaroo Island areas because it is easier to see animals throughout the course of the day than in the summer periods.
In the West, in particular in Perth, the weather is very hot in summer and it has mild winters.
During the summer school holiday period (corresponding to our Christmas) and the period of the Easter holiday is easy to find the sold out in many locations.

CULTURE
Meeting with Aboriginal culture
Traditional Owners, called the Aborigines today. The original inhabitants of Australia, still divided into tribes with different dialects and customs from each other, lead us to the discovery of their culture in which the dominant element is always the relationship with "Mother Earth" and its fruits.
Many of the places you visit during the excursions and tours are accessible only if you are accompanied by a representative of the aboriginal tribes of the land owner in which they are located.

It's the country with the largest monolith in the world (Uluru-Ayers Rock), the largest living organism (the Great Barrier Reef) and the only one visible from the moon, with the highest number of beaches (more than 7000), with the long railway straight stretch (478 km), with the longest fence in the world, with the ten types of the most venomous snakes, with the highest number of rabbits (over 10 billion).

The Eucalyptus is miraculous!
Its beneficial and healing properties are known throughout the world: it is effective in treatment of respiratory infections, intestinal and urogenital. The coal of its wood is used in case of accidental poisoning by rotten food. Also it appears to be effective in some cases of diabetes and in dealing with toccature wounds and burns.
Its intense aroma is a friend of the well-being: it is frequently used as a deodorant and cleansing of impure skin, and generally to prepare for body cleansers. In the spa treatments its aroma is used as a perfumer of saunas and steam baths. The essential oil of the plant is in many cases used for a range of massages.
Requiring a great need of water, it was useful in the reclamation of the Pontine Marshes in the first decades of the twentieth century. The eucalyptus was planted there intensively, and because it helped to dry up the land from the stagnant water, and because the rows created by the trees worked perfectly well as a windbreak against the frequent tornadoes that struck the area.
The eucalyptus wood is very suitable for the production of paper and as a fuel.
