Australia is the sixth largest country in the world, but the smallest continent. It is divided up into six states and two territories. The capital is Canberra. Before this area was developed it was virtually untouched. It was, in fact, a Dutch explorer who first discovered Australia and named it New Holland. However, it wasn’t until 1770 that Captain James Cook explored what Australia really had to offer and renamed it, New England.
In 1788 Australia ended up being a prison colony for British convicts and stayed that way for more than 80 years. In this time period the region was home to more than 165,000 inmates.
