The blank mainland of Australia is the world largest island but also the smallest continent. The country is divided into six states and two territories as its mentioned in Blank map of Australia. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) bounds the national capital of Canberra and is the centre of government. The Australian Capital Territory is located approximately 290 kilometres (180 miles) south of Sydney.

The blank border between South Australia and Victoria has an interesting history. It was to have been surveyed along the 141st meridian of longitude. However, through a series of miscalculations the line was originally positioned 3.6 kilometres further to the west as you can see in Blank map of Australia. Lines of longitude were difficult to calculate in the 1800's because long distances travelled were measured off by chains which need to be gradually adjusted to compensate for the lines of longitude drawing closer together as one moves away from the equator.

South Australia (SA) sits in the southern central part of the blank country of Australia, and covers some of the most arid parts of the continent as its mentioned in the Blank map of Australia. Tasmania (TAS) is separated from mainland Australia by the Bass Strait and is the smallest state in Australia.

Australia shares maritime outlines with East Timor, Indonesia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and New Caledonia (France). Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans, it is separated from Asia by the Arafura and Timor seas, with the Coral Sea lying off the Queensland coast, and the Tasman Sea lying between Australia and New Zealand as its shown in Australia map outlines.

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world and is the only one of the top six completely surrounded by water. The mainland and Tasmania also are surrounded by many thousands of small fringing islands and numerous larger ones as its mentioned in Australia map outlines. Almost forty per cent of the total coastline length comprises island coastlines. As an island nation, coastlines play an important role in defining National, State and Territory boundaries.

Australia does not have any countries bordering it or Australia outlines, but it does have neighbours including Indonesia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea to the north, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, New Caledonia to the North-East, and New Zealand to the South-East as its mentioned in Australia map outlines.

The vector map of Australia shows entire surface of Australia empty. This vector map of Australia will allow you to make changes or add details to the map of Australia in Oceania, for personal or educational purposes. The vectorial map of Australia is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.

Australia has an approximately oval vector, with the country wider east to west than north to south as you can see in Australia map vector. At the north and south of the continent are two areas of water that cut into the Australian mainland, the Gulf of Carpentaria in the north and the Great Australian Bight in the south.

The vector of Australia is due largely to tectonic Earth movements and long term changes in sea level as you can see in Australia map vector, most of its topography is a result of prolonged erosion by wind and water. About 50 per cent of Australia rivers drain inland and often end in ephemeral salt lakes. Many of the features of the drainage pattern have a very long history, and some individual valleys have maintained their position for millions of years.

Australia is the planet sixth largest country after Russia, Canada, China, the USA, and Brazil as its shown in Australia map vector. At 7 692 024 km2, it accounts for just five percent of the world land area of 149 450 000 km2, and although it is the smallest continental land mass, it is the world largest island.
