Australia is a continent that is surrounded by the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Australia is also surrounded by several seas. The only sea that I know is the Tasman Sea. A long time ago, Australia was attached to some other continents. I’m not sure what continents it was stuck to, but all that I know, is that Australia is the smallest continent out of all continents.
In Australia, the population is over 20,500,000 people! The first people on the Australian mainland were the Aborigines. I have no idea what other ancient people were washed up onto the Australian mainland. I only know that Aborigines used to live in different tribes.
In Australia, there are major landforms for example: The Great Dividing Mountains and the Tanami Desert. The Dividing Mountains are on the western coast of Australia. The Tanami Desert is in the mid-point of Australia. The mid-point of Australia is the hottest region on the whole continent.
The climate in Australia can go up to about 53 degrees Celsius during the summer. It can go down to about -2 degrees Celsius during the winter. In Australia, it is dry almost all year long! During the tropical season, the weather is usually a little wet although it is still contains very dry lands.
Australia also contains many unique animals like the koala, kangaroo, and the possum. The Australians use wild pumpkin, wild and safe berries, mint, and other green shoots that grow in some of the green forests to help them to survive. Aboriginal citizens used to use these ingredients to make damper bread. Two of Australia’s most famous cities are Canberra, Sydney.
