Australian nature is extremely diverse and interesting, with a number of unique animals living in Australia.
The wildlife in Australia has evolved in isolation and so has a unique and individual appearance. This also means that the animals have adapted well to the varying and often harsh climatic differences around Australia.
The city of Sydney, Australia, is home to some of the finest and most famous beaches in the world .
Australia is surrounded by ocean currents that have a strong controlling influence on things such as climate, ecosystems, fish migrations, the transport of ocean debris and on water quality.
Australia is the sixth largest country in the world in terms of land mass. The entire country of Australia includes the Australian continent and numerous islands off the coast of the continent including Tasmania.
Countries that surround Australia include Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and East Timor to the north and New Zealand to the south.
Lake Hillier delights your eye with its pink colour. Moreover, it lies just next to the Pacific Ocean, thus if you watch it from above, the contrast between the mellow pink of the lake and the blue of the ocean is striking.
Lake MacDonnell, Australia
McDonnell Lake is a medium size lake located about 35 kilometres west of Smithers.
It is the last in a chain of three popular fishing lakes located along the McDonnell Forest Service Road, preceded by Aldrich and Dennis Lakes.
The lake is known for its cutthroat trout, but also contains dolly varden. Although the fish are not often large, they are plentiful.
Sydney receives over 10 million international and domestic visitors each year for its beaches and attractions.
Given its favourable weather, rich European history, vibrant economy and diverse lifestyle options, it is not surprising that Australia's largest city is such a popular destination for tourist and migrants.
However, Sydney is more than just the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and beaches.
