Arbonne launches into Australia and lands in the perfect spot!  
When you’re the industry leader and continually setting the standard year after year, borders and boundaries don’t necessarily apply. In fact, for a flourishing company such as Arbonne, the end of one frontier is merely the beginning of another. And with a dedicated network of Independent Consultants, a comprehensive line of exclusive products, and a dynamic opportunity for everyone involved, it was only a matter of time before word about Arbonne got out and the immediate need to expand internationally became clear. And now, as we gear up to launch into Australia and beyond, the message is loud and clear—that this exceptional blend of people and products is spreading … and your bright dreams for the future are just about to take off!  
Australia its diversity makes it unique!  
The island continent of Australia features a wide range of climatic zones, from the tropical regions of the north through the arid expanses of the interior, to the temperate regions of the south. This variety of climatic conditions allows skiing in the winter months near the southern alpine regions and swimming and snorkeling in the northern parts of Australia. However, in the tropical north of Australia, the seasons are characterized by wet and dry, the wet season being in December, January and February, when the rest of Australia is enjoying summer.  
Geography and Climate  
Australia is the only continent occupied entirely by one nation. Australia is the sixth largest country in the world, and it is only a little smaller than the continental United States, at 7,700,000 square kilometers (2,970,000 square miles). Australia spans 3,700 kilometers (2,294 miles) from north to south and 4,000 kilometers (2,480 miles) from east to west. The seasons are the reverse of those in the Northern hemisphere.  
The History  
Permanent European settlement began in 1788 in the form of a British colony. A federation (the Commonwealth) formed in 1901 by written constitution, and now comprises six states (New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and Western Australia). The commonwealth has two territories on the mainland, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory, both of which are self-governing. Australia also has seven external territories under its administration, which include Norfolk Island.  
Population  
The current population of Australia is approximately 20.76 million and is growing at a rate of 1% each year. More than 85% of all households live in urban areas, mostly along the coastal regions. Sydney is the largest city in Australia, with 6 million people. Forty percent of all people live in Sydney and Melbourne. Approximately 1/3 of all Australians are younger than 20 years, accounting for a very young population.  
Language  
English is the only language readily understood in the business community.  
Cultural and Social Life  
Australian is a multicultural nation. Together with Europeans, many people from Asia and the Pacific regions have brought their languages and cultures with them to Australia.
