Australia is a gorgeous country known for its rich culture, its lovely people, and that song by Men at Work, titled “Down Under”. But some of Australia’s more acclaimed features have to do with its natural beauty! This continent surrounded by sea has natural resources other countries may envy. 

If you’d like to learn more about it, Gaab Travel International will share you a few impressive facts with you in this post!

Impressive Facts about Australia’s Environment

It’s Extremely Biodiverse 

Australia is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. So much so that it houses 10% of the world’s biodiversity! Not only that, but this country also hosts a wide variety of ecosystems as well: there are deserts, rainforests, the largest coral reef in the world, and more.

It’s Unique

Yes, Australia has an abundance in flora and fauna. But, what’s more impressive is that its isolated nature (since its surrounded by water), resulted in over 80% of its inhabitants to be endemic (meaning they only exist here). The kangaroo and koala bear are two of them!

It’s Venomous

Well, not all of its ecosystem is venomous. But the rumors are true: Australia hosts some of the most venomous spiders and snakes around. Still, they don’t seek you out to attack you (contrary to your worst nightmares). If you stay clear of them, you’ll be just fine.

It’s Everywhere

For a country that has over 7 million km2 of land mass, it being 91% filled with native vegetation is pretty remarkable. Moreover, it has one of the largest maritime territories in the world with 12 million km2, which is connected to three oceans.

It’s a Touristic Attraction!

Each year, over 6 million people visit the Australian continent. During their stay, they want to experience some of its natural richness in person, making ecotourism one of the fastest growing branches of the Australian tourism industry!
