Australia is a country which is famously known to be gird by seas. Much of the Australian lifestyle revolves around the sea with all of the cities within relatively close proximity to it. The coastal land is more fertile and arable than inland Australia, therefore we have been forced to move to the countrys' borders.
This FACT indicates the length of coastline in each Australian state in kilometers, including islands. Western Australia has the longest total coastline with 20,781 kilometers, whereas the ACT which has no ocean coastal region, but does border a lake has only 36 kilometers.
