Australia ranks as the sixth largest country and the smallest continent. It is located between the South Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, about 11,000 kilometers southwest of North America and about 3,200 kilometers southeast of mainland Asia. Australia is often referred to as being "down under" because it lies entirely within the Southern Hemisphere. The name Australia comes from the Latin word australis, which means southern.
