It was THIS big!

Apparently this is a postcard from the Western Australia Museum. Crikey, it’s a bonza design! Hat tip for the find to my mum, along with Blue Carpet Collective (click through for their page).

See that little pink blob up near Kakadu? That’s the UK. Oh, the area along the coast from Adelaide to Melbourne? Greece. Germany? A bit of desert. France? More desert. South Africa gets the lion’s share here – most of the good bits, really.

Oh, hi Denmark.

    It is easy to forget how huge Oz is when one lives here and drives long distances to visit….friends, rellies, tourist spots etc. This map certainly puts it into perspective. We have a surface area comparable to that of China… with a population of 22 million people. Wow, indeed.

  3. I wanted to jot down a brief remark to be able to say thanks to you for all the marvelous ways you are showing at this website. My prolonged internet lookup has at the end been honored with awesome facts and techniques to share with my classmates and friends. I ‘d state that that most of us site visitors are really blessed to dwell in a fine site with very many special individuals with helpful principles. I feel truly fortunate to have used your entire web pages and look forward to tons of more excellent times reading here. Thanks a lot once again for all the details.
