Australia Hotels and Resorts - is the sixth largest country in the world. It's about the same size as the 48 mainland states of the USA and 50 per cent larger than Europe, but has the lowest population density in the world - only two people per square kilometer. This is a place where stories are painted and Kangaroos fly, where shorts are the dress code and smiles are second nature. A different adventure, a different tomorrow, a different light.
