About (Melbourne Self Drive Tour Package)
Australia is one of the most unique and diverse countries on planet earth. Australia was first settled by the indigenous tribes who were the sole owners of this vast continent. Later during the nineteenth century, European immigrants arrived along with many captive prisoners. Australia is the most sparsely populated country and most of the population is concentrated along the glamorous east coast cities of Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Australia’s western half and central region is full of desert and outback. Initially after the advent of Europeans many aborigine tribes lost their lands and rights to the Europeans and their numbers also declined due to European introduced diseases and armed clashes. Europeans settlers formed provinces, initially six which later joined to become a one country- Australia. This is a highly developed country with very high quality of life. Australia has large areas that have been deforested for agricultural purposes, but many native forest areas survive in extensive national parks and other undeveloped areas. Long-term Australian concerns include salinity, pollution, loss of biodiversity, and management and conservation of coastal areas, especially the Great Barrier Reef.
This is a country full of passionate people who excel in arts and music, sports, science and technology and whatever they do. Australia is also a very sporting nation where sports are way of life. Australian Rules football and cricket is very popular. Recently with the success of Australian Soccer team, football is widely followed and admired. Rugby remains a very popular sports and Australia is full of swimmers who always make the country proud during the Olympics. The service industries, including tourism, education, and financial services, account for the majority of the Australian Gross Domestic Product. Within the service sector, tourism is one of the most important industries in Australia, as it provides employment, contributes $73 billion to the economy each year and accounts for at least 11% of total exports. Australia is also blessed with a long coastline and beaches play an important role in the life of locals. Every weekends and holidays, large numbers of locals hit the beaches and enjoy life.
