Australian Nature

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.

Around 55 million years ago Australia belonged to Gondwana (named by Eduard Suess), which was a landmass made up of a number of "todays" countries including most contained within the "Southern Hemisphere" and a few that have moved to the "Northern Hemisphere".

KoalasIt was almost completely covered in rainforest, although much of this dried out as Australia moved towards the warmer climate.
