Useful Information. Useful information on Australia
Map of Australia and division of 6 States and 2 mainland Territories.
General: Australia is a country in the Southern Hemisphere between the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean. Its official name is the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia is the sixth biggest country in the world by landmass. 22 million people live in Australia. About 60% live in and around the mainland state capitals of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Australia's capital city is Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory. Although Canberra is the capital of Australia, it is relatively small in population. The continent of Australia and the islands of New Zealand are called Australasia, and together with the islands nearby, Oceania. International telephone country code: +61, Internet country code: .au, Electricity voltage: 240V frequency 50 Hz, Electrical outlet: standard 3-pin, Three time zones:
- Eastern Standard Time (EST) GMT +10: in New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland
- Central Standard Time (CST) GMT +9.30: in South Australia and Northern Territory
- Western Standard Time (WST) GMT +8: in Western Australia
Australian states except Northern Territory and Western Australia and Queensland have daylight saving during the summer months.
Languages: Australia has no official language and no declared national language. English is the default language throughout the country. CIA World Factbook (cia.gov) shows that 78.5% of Australians speak English and then Italian, Greek, Cantonese, Arabic, Mandarin and Vietnamese, in that order, are the other widely spoken languages. There are many remaining Aboriginal languages spoken by the Indigenous people. Sydney is Australia’s most multicultural city, closely followed by Melbourne. Sydney and Melbourne are home to around 65 per cent of all non-English speaking migrants, who together speak some 240 foreign languages. Australian English is similar to British English. In everyday use, many words have a completely different meaning in Australia than they do in other English-speaking countries. Australians often cannot decide whether to use American or British spelling, e.g. program/programme, labor/labour, etc., and consequently you will find both in use. Everything is abbreviated in Australia, often by shortening any word with more than two syllables and adding a suffix e, o, i, ie or y (Ex. Aussie for Australian, reffo for refugee, footy for football).
Climate: The climate of Australia varies widely, but by far the largest part of Australia is desert or semi-arid. The weather can range from below zero temperatures in the Snowy Mountains to intolerable heat in the north-west. It is considered to be one of the driest continents on earth. Being in the Southern Hemisphere its seasons are in reverse to Europe and America:
- Spring: September - November
- Summer: December - February
- Autumn: March - May
- Winter: June - August
Spring and Autumn have the nicest weather.
States, territories, major cities: The Commonwealth of Australia is a union of six states and various territories. The Australian mainland is made up of five states and two territories, with the sixth state of Tasmania being made up of islands. In addition, there are six island territories, known as external territories, and a claim to a territory in Antarctica. Australia's 6 states and 2 mainland territories, and their major cities (in brackets the capital city) are:
- New South Wales (Sydney): Wollongong, Newcastle, Griffith, Wagga Wagga, Dubbo, Albury, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Goulburn, Tamworth, Orange, Bathurst, Katoomba, Lithgow, Armidale, Queanbeyan

Taxis: There are metre-operated taxicabs in all major cities and towns. You can hail a taxi in the street or pick up one at a taxi rank at transport terminals, major hotels or shopping centres. Cabs have a light and sign on the roof to show they are available for service. There is a minimum 'Flagfall' charge, plus a charge for the distance/time travelled. Taxi drivers do not expect to receive a tip, but will appreciate it.
Currency: The Australian Dollar (AUD) is the currency in Australia, Canton and Enderbury Islands, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands (Keeling Islands), Heard and McDonald Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Norfolk Island, and Tuvalu. The symbol for AUD can be written A$, Au$, $Au, Aud$, $Aud, Aus$, and $Aus. The Australian Dollar is divided into 100 cents. The approximate exchange rate on 29th March 2011 was: 1 Euro = 1.38 AUD, 1 US$ = 0.98 AUD, 1 GB£ = 1.56 AUD.
Money: Australia was the first country in the world to have bank notes made from plastic, which last much longer than conventional paper notes. Australia’s currency comprises notes of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Australian dollar denominations; and coins of 5, 10, 20 and 50 cent and one and two Australian dollar denominations. ATM cards can be used in Australia at ATM machines and at participating retail locations, so long as they have been enabled for international access. The most commonly accepted credit cards are American Express, Bankcard, Carte Blanche, Diners Club, MasterCard and Visa. You should cash travellers checks at banks or larger hotels as it may be difficult elsewhere. Banks will cash most travellers checks in various currencies.

The available forms of gambling are: casino, sports betting (including horse racing and dog racing), lottery, keno, housie (the Australian version of bingo) and gaming machines (slots and videopoker) mostly found in pubs and clubs.
