Australia Geography, Climate, and Weather




Geography
Australia, an island continent located Southeast of Asia and colaborating with the neighboring island of Tasmania, the Commonwealth of Australia, a self-governing member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Australia is also the largest island and the smallest continent in the world. It was once part of Asia, but the massive land broke off and drifted south about 25,000 years ago.

Climate
Australia is situated in the Southern hemisphere, between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean. Basically, Australia's seasons are just the opposite of the northern hemisphere - summer starts in December, fall in March, winter in June and spring in September. The seasons are arid to semiarid; with temperate zone in south and east; tropical climate in north. The tropical zone (consisting of 40% of Australia) has two major seasons, summer ('wet') and winter ('dry') while the temperate zone has all four seasons (winter, spring, summer and fall).
