The country of Australia relation 80500 (officially Commonwealth of Australia) is a sovereign state and the largest country by area in Oceania. The vast lands of Australia are geologically varied: deserts, rainforests, alpine areas, and human settlements are dotted across the sparse landscape.

Australia is strongly represented within the OpenStreetMap community, and Australians have been major contributors to the map since its inception. This page provides links to Australian-specific mapping resources that can support collaboration among new and established contributors.
