1) The upside down world. 2) Climate of Australia. 3)Extraordinary collection of animals.
Sometimes Australia is called “the upside down world”. Because Australia lies in the Southern Hemisphere, where winter comes in July and summer begins in December.
During the Christmas holidays people often sunbathe on the beach or swim and surf in the ocean. Australia is the hottest place in the Southern Hemisphere. In July the usual temperatures are from 20 * to 30* C above zero or higher
Most parts of Australia do not receive enough rain. Only one sixth of the continent – a bolt of land along the north, east, and south coasts- is comfortably humid. This narrow belt of land is the place where summers are warm and sunny and winters are mind.
Most of the dry land is uninhabited, which explains Australia`s small population- about 18 million people.
Australia has an extraordinary collection of birds and animals. Many of them are found only there. Early explorers were so surprise by the emu and the kangaroo that they describe the continent as the land where birds “ran instead of flying and animals hopped instead of running”
Australia is the home of two of the worlds most primitive mammals- the duckbill or platypus and the echidna or spiny anteater.
The kangaroo is perhaps the best known of Australia s animals. There are more than 40 different kinds of kangaroos in Australia, in many different colours and sizes.
The big red kangaroo and the grey kangaroo may be as tall as a grown-up man
Some kangaroos are about the size of a large dog.
