The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Australia is the only nation that occupies an entire continent. Known as
"The Land Down Under", it is located south of the equator between the Indian
and Pacific oceans. Most of the population lives in the well watered coastal
region, while the dry interior, or "Outback", is sparsely populated.
Australia was established as a British colony for convicts in 1788. The
continent was divided into several separate colonies by Great Britain, and
eventually non-convicts began to emigrate to Australia. In 1901 the
colonies were granted independence as one nation.
Australia has a long
tradition of religious freedom, but that status has been threatened by
restrictive legislation. In recent years Christianity has been in serious
decline as secularization has advanced.
