F ROM C OLONIZATION TO U RBANIZATION Aboriginal settlers arrived on the continent from Southeast Asia about 40,000 years before the first Europeans began exploration in the 17th century. No formal claims were made until 1770, when Capt. James COOK took possession in the name of Great Britain.
A BORIGINES Aborigines were the first or earliest people known. Aborigines lived in Australia for at least 12,000 years before they appeared in Europe.
C OLONIZATION AND U RBANIZATION II The British first used Australia as a penal colony because of the lack of prison space in the UK. British posts were set up around the perimeter of the “Outback”; which was where the prisoners were kept. These posts grew into cities as more British ventured to Australia. Eventually, these developed into the major cities of Australia. Colonization is an example of one of the many ways that human involvement has shaped Australia today.

T HE G REAT B ARRIER R EEF The Great Barrier Reef off the northeast coast, the largest coral reef in the world, is threatened by increased shipping and its popularity as a tourist site. It holds numerous species of fish, marine mammals, as well as aquatic plants and corals. One section of the reef, Dangerous Reef, has one of the worlds greatest population of great white sharks.
G REAT B ARRIER R EEF II More and more people from all over the world visit Australia every year. The reef is one of the foremost reasons for Australian tourism. This plays a major role in the shaping of Australia’s economy and urbanization to the coastal cities.

T HE O UTBACK The Outback is a physical “no-mans land”. Also called “The Bush”, the environment is not as human friendly as is Australia’s coasts. Therefore, the population numbers of the outback are very sparse. Because of the physically rugged land, there are few towns; such as Cuber Peaty.
T HE O UTBACK II Because of the physical nature of the outback, Australia’s cities are becoming very urbanized. This is an example of the physical environment that has shaped Australia.

F ORESTS OF A USTRALIA Plantation forests (softwood and some hardwood) have been defined as an eighth group which covers trees planted for commercial use. The majority of Australia's trees are hardwoods, typically eucalypts, rather than softwoods like pine. While softwoods dominate some native forests, their total area is judged insufficient to constitute a major forest type in Australia's National Forest Inventory.
E UCALYPTS Eucalypts are woody plants belonging to three closely related genera: Eucalyptus, Corymbia a nd Angophora. In 1995 new evidence, largely genetic, indicated that some prominent Eucalyptus species were actually more closely related to Angophora than to the other eucalypts; they were split off into the new genus Corymbia. Although separate, the three groups are allied and it remains acceptable to refer to the members of all three genera Angophora, Corymbia a nd Eucalyptus as "eucalypts"
