Located between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean, Australia is the world’s smallest continent, but its sixth largest country. The process of gaining formal independence from the British Empire was gradual throughout the 20th century, but the country’s stable democratic government has been long established. The State has been widely criticised for its practice of detaining children in immigration facilities as well as persisting discrimination against children from aboriginal backgrounds.
