I know it's finite, but it doesn't seem to say anywhere how big it is.I would guess only as big as Australia or no.

You'll get a different answer depending on what author you consult, since folks have been using versions of Leng in their stories for nearly a century now. As for the Pathfinder version, we published an article about it along with a map of Leng in Pathfinder #65 "Into the Nightmare Rift." But we deliberately left a scale OFF of that map because one of the elements of nightmares is the idea of distances being mutable. Think of the classic nightmare where you're trying to move from one point to another while you're being chased, but the distance grows faster than you can traverse it.

It's still finite, but as a realm of nightmare, just how big that finite size is constantly changes based on the story.

And the inverse, where the thing chasing you always seems to be just two steps behind, or just at the top of a nearby hill, or somehow got in front of you, no matter how quickly you're running.

Just the length though. It's wid-sized the other way.
