Gather Insights with an Australian Territories Map

Create a Custom Map of Australia with Mapline

You can now create a map of Australian states and territories. Australia is a continent made up of six states, three federal territories, and seven external . It is the flattest, oldest and driest inhabited continent with one of the lowest population densities in the world at 2.8 inhabitants per square kilometer.

Australia’s six states include:

  • New South Wales – Sydney, the capital, is the largest and the most cosmopolitan city. The economy of this state is the largest in Australia.
  • Victoria – This state is the smallest of the mainland states, yet the second-most populous.
  • Northern Territory – Aborigines make up the larger portion of its population.
  • South Australia – Defined by extreme wilderness, this state is also home to red sand dunes and Adelaide, the “City of Churches.”
  • Western Australia – Nearly the size of Western Europe, this state has a population of more than one million. More than 70 percent of its people live in Perth, the capital city.

Australia’s federal territories include:

  • Australian Capital Territory – Nicknamed “the Bush Capital” for its forests and farmland, this territory was established in 1911.
  • Jervis Bay Territory – This territory was surrendered by New South Wales in 1915 to give the federal capital access to the sea.
  • Northern Territory – Known for its Outback deserts, this territory also has sculpted cliffs and red rock mountains.
