Australia is massive

Australia is bigThe one thing the internet does very well is give you visual feedback which is mindboggling. The capacity of the internet to deliver information in a visual form which will really make you think is astounding. As Australians, one of the things we find hard to explain is just how big Australia is. People don’t get it. These 17 maps put Australia into perspective for the rest of the world but even Australians will get a clear vision of just how big Australia is and will be able to explain it better. Buzzfeed is where you can look at 17 maps of Australia which will give you a clear idea of how massive Australia is. I love map 17.

  1. This really IS a case where a picture is worth a thousand words. I remember, years ago, when teachers attempted to indicate our continent’s size by describing cattle and sheep stations which were larger than England. It was a hard concept to absorb, especially for students who were city born-and-bred and who lived in Australia’s coastal areas.

    But the visual input of this sequence of maps is stunning – none more so than the map of indigenous linguistic regions. The compilers should be congratulated, since most of the ‘postcards’ can be understood no matter in what language the viewer is fluent.

    • I know. They could never adequately explain how big Australia was. You really have to see it and now we can, thanks to these maps. You are right, they have put in a fantastic effort on creating meaningful visual images.
