Here’s a helpful picture for all you visual leaners out there. No, this obviously does not include the huge state of Alaska but this does give you a better idea of how big the Australian continent actually is. Let’s throw in some numbers now for good measure.
- The US population is almost 319 million people.
- The Australian population is just over 23 million.
- California just by itself has over 38 million people and most of those people live in southern California.
- Perth has about 2 million people but there are only about 2.5 million people in all of Western Australia (the entire left third of the country).
