Australia is one of the world's largest countries, with a population of only 21 million. This means that certain areas of the country are extremely sparsely populated when compared to other countries. Not only does this result in people relocating to Australia being able to decide whether to live in a populated or quiet area, but they can also usually buy property and land as a relatively low cost.
