Ways of communication in Australia

Australia is a country that is said to have more distance physically from the remaining parts of the world.

So, Australia has benefitted from various recent communication technologies. Letter writing was the only method to communicate to long distances during the past.

These letters were sent through ship which took months to get delivered to people in Australia. Telephones were the next big thing in Australia that helped their people to stay in touch with people from all around the world in a much easier manner.

Then came fax machines, using which people could send a picture, letter or a photo in a very short time period. Fax machines are not used widely nowadays wherein they are only used to get some papers quickly signed for some official purpose.

However, these days, mobile phones, internet, mass media such as radio, television, magazines and newspapers has become the most widely used forms of communication within the country and also outside the country.
