Australia is a big place. It covers 7.7 million square kilometres. You would think it would be easy to find, but it stayed hidden from everyone but its First People for a very long time.

See who got it right and who didn’t as, bit by bit, the outline of Australia appeared in Putting Australia on the Map.
