Came across this
relative country size Sizeof10
I know it is only Europe and not the other parts of the world, but this may give an idea of distances we have in Australia that are covered by the Aussie forum members.

Yeah you lucky sods - all that sunshine and wide open roads! Very Happy

I saw a similar map for Africa - they had Europe, China, North America, Arabia and some other odds and sods all fit into it - awesome.

Cheers
Dave

Our bigges cattle station Elizabeth Downs which has since been broken up was 110 miles from the homestead to the front gate and was just a touch bigger than Texas.
Victoria is considered to be a small state and UK would fit into it 3 times I think or it may have even been 4 I'm not sure.
I met a couple who were sharing a house with some German back packers in Brisbane and they woke up one Saturday morning to the back packers loading lots of gear into an early 70s wagon and when enquiring where they were moving on to they were told we are going to Darwin and will be back Sunday night. They hadn't quite come to grips with the size of the place.
Brisbane to Darwin just over 3000k.

They didn't see the point of anybody living there because what is the purpose of frozen cheese. They certainly are a strange lot.

You'll find some countries failed to comply with the bob Katter compliance test to fit in with us Australians so they have been excluded so far

And yet his constituents vote him back in every time cause they love him.....he does something extraordinary in that he listens to his folk and does what is suggested....I know the other pollies will drum him out at this rate..so the crazy things he says and does are him representing his people...and even worse I hear he does not ride a K or any other Bike!!!!
