Australia is a country in the southern hemisphere between the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. The capital city is Canberra and the biggest one is Sydney. The population of Australia is about 24 million people. It is composed of six states, two major mainland territories, and other minor territories. The main language is English and the official currency is the Australian dollar (AU$). The Australian emblem is a flower called the Golden Wattle. It is a very interesting tourist destination with over six million tourist visitors per year, who predominately visit the big cities along the coast combined with the „bush“ – the interior part, also full of exotic and beautiful tourist destinations. The majority of them arrive from the neighbouring country New Zealand, then from China, the USA, Malaysia and Singapore. From Europe most of the visitors are from Germany. As this continent was developing far from the rest of the world there are many specific types of flora and fauna, which together with a specific relief, climate and specific gastronomic elements make Australia an exceptionally attractive tourist destination with Sydney, Melbourne and the Golden Coast as most frequently visited. Generally, tourism is the most developing branch of industry globally in the world and it is predicted that it will be growing in the future too. Tourism makes an important contribution to the Australian GDP and therefore a contribution to the entire Australian economy. Tourism in Australia is still growing.
