Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is for the traveller that loves adventure. This wondrous continent is home to many small islands, exciting landscapes, and exotic animals. Australia is in fact considered a megadiverse country, which means that it harbours the majority of Earth’s species as well as a high number of endemic species.
Australia’s massive size gives it a wide variety of landscapes and climates with tropical rainforest in the north-east, and arid desert in the centre.
Australia is striking in that it offers an incredibly wide range of outdoor activities, weird and wonderful creatures, and is home to some of the world’s oldest geographical features. It is also where some of the most exciting cities, breath-taking skylines, and secluded rugged terrains can be found. This country features some of the most stunning colours of Mother Nature. The bright ruby grapefruit of the outback against the soft blue sky, the dense green of the eucalyptus-tree-covered coastline compared to the flamingo colour of the ‘pink lake’ creates an image that rivals that of any surrealist painter.
More than 80% of its mammals, plants, reptiles and frogs are unique to Australia, and can’t be find anywhere else in the world!
Australia is easy to love, apart from it being beautiful on the outside, it is also beautiful on the inside. Its culture is deeply connected to the land. Australia’s native people, the Aboriginals, feel spiritually connected to the land so much so that they believe that water is the living cultural knowledge that is passed down to future generations.
Australia is known for adventure, wildlife, and outdoor activities. Popular once-in-a-lifetime Australian adventures include; skydiving, snorkelling and scuba diving among The Great Barrier and Ningaloo Reef, surfing, sailing, camping, rafting and of course swimming with marine animals. There are many more activities to enjoy on this fantastic continent like hiking, or exploring National Parks since as we are sure you’ve heard, Australia is famous for more than its water activities. Australia has natural wonders, open spaces, marvellous beaches, extraordinary deserts, ‘the outback’, and of course ‘the bush’, all of which are worthy of a visit.
