Australia is the smallest continent and the sixth-largest country by land area. It is comparable in size to the 48 contiguous United States.

Australia is highly urbanised with most of the population heavily concentrated along the eastern and south-eastern coasts. Most of the inland areas of the country are semi-arid. The most-populous states are Victoria and New South Wales. Australia has large areas that have been deforested for agricultural purposes, but many native forest areas survive in extensive national parks and other undeveloped areas. Long-term Australian concerns include salinity, pollution, loss of biodiversity, and management and conservation of coastal areas, especially the Great Barrier Reef. Here is a list of some great Australian places:

Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is a wonderful site of remarkable variety and beauty of nature on the north-east coast of Australia. Great barrier reef contains the world’s biggest collection of coral reefs, with 400 types of coral, 1,500 species of fish and 4,000 types of mollusc. It also has great scientific interest as the habitat of species such as the sea cow and the large green turtle, which are threatened with extinction. This site contains major feeding grounds for the endangered dugong, marine turtle, the green and the loggerhead, as well as habitat for four other species of marine turtle.
