Australia is an incredibly diverse island, continent, and country- both culturally and geographically speaking. The widely recognized “Outback” takes up the center of the giant island, but most other areas contain everything from rainforests, to mountains and canyons, to world-famous beaches. Nearly all of Australia’s population lives within 50 miles of the coastline. The cities of Perth, Melbourne, and Sydney are scenic and thriving melting pots.
The Sydney Opera House is one of the most-photographed buildings in the world, known for its unique use of a series of gleaming white sail-shaped shells as its roof structure. The iconic performing arts facility is Sydney’s best-known landmark.
Australia has very different species to other continents because it became isolated from all the other continents 99 million years ago. … Eventually the Kangaroos evolved, unable to leave the continent. So this is why kangaroos only live (in the wild) in Australia.
