Australia is an island continent located southeast of Asia and forming, with the nearby island of Tasmania, the Commonwealth of Australia. The continent is bordered on the north by the Timor Sea, the Arafura Sea, and the Torres Strait, on the east by the Coral Sea and the Tasman Sea, on the south by the Bass Strait and the Indian Ocean, and on the west by the Indian Ocean. The Commonwealth extends for about 4000 km (about 2500 mi) from east to west and for about 3700 km (about 2300 mi) from north to south. Its coastline measures some 25,760 km (about 16,010 mi). The area of the Commonwealth is 7,682,300 sq km (2,966,200 sq mi), and the area of the continent alone is 7,614,500 sq km (2,939,974 sq mi), making Australia the smallest continent in the world, but the sixth largest country.
