About This Quiz

G'day, mate! Today, we're traveling to the land down under! When it comes to the island, country, and continent that is Australia, how well do you know its geography?

When you normally think of a continent, you might think of a landmass that is made up of numerous countries. Africa has 54 countries while Europe has 50. Asia has 48, North America has 23 and South America is made up of 12. While all of these habitable continents have multiple countries, Australia is one continent that is only made up of one country - itself! From its relatively small landmass, how much of its geography do you know?

Australia is a country made up of states and territories. How many does it have? What bodies of water can you find surrounding the continent? What is the capital of the country? In which city would you find the iconic Opera House? If you can answer these questions, you're ready for this Australian geography quiz!
