Australia By: Mahrukh and Sarah V. Australia is a country and continent located underneath some of the Eastern islands in Asia. It lies between 10 and 39 South Latitude. Australia is a very developed country and is one of the worlds top tourism countries with many different attractions. Australia is ranked 2nd in the HDI Rankings. Sydney Opera House Uluru located in Northern Australia Australia Beaches in Australia Australia is famous for their islands
(Great Barrier Reef Island) One of the reasons why Australia is so wealthy and is developed is because the British colony first put a lot of money into Australia when it was first separated. Australia also has a lot of its natural goods. Population in 2013: 22 986 637 Land Area: 76 582 300 km2 Population Density: population area km2 = SYDNEY people per km2 22 986 637 7 682 300 = 2.99 people per km2 Hi! Australian English is the form of the English
language used in Australia. Australian English has a distinctive accent and vocabulary. Other languages spoken there are Australian Aboriginal languages. Australians are called the Aussies, Australian or Oz. Australia's population density is low because it is only 2.99 people per km2, which is very low compared to the average, considering the big space of land. Compared to other countries such as Canada (35 056 064) or USA (311 591 917), it is very low. Hello Mate! Life Expectancy Rate: Males: 79.7
Females: 84.2 Average: 82.0 Fertility Rate: 1995-2000= 1.8
2010= 1.92 Literacy Rate: (Ages 15-74) 99% Birth Rate: 13 per 1000 people

Males: 159 996
Females: 146 621 Death Rate: 7 per 1000 people Males: 6.7
Females: 4.7 Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. Its ocean territory is the world’s third largest, spanning three oceans (Pacific, Indian and Antarctic). It is one of the countries that is completely surrounded by water. Australia is an urban country with many types of parkland. One of the largest parkland in Australia is the Sydney Olympic Park, which provides 430 hectares of open space, recreational areas, wetlands, and waterways. It’s a diverse and special area where there are protected woodlands and rare salt marshes to create a unique parkland setting. Australia's highest point is located on the mainland on Mount Kosciusko, which is 2,228 m high. Sydney Olympic Park Australia is an urban city by a higher population density. Australia has many cities, towns and conurbations. In Australia, urban areas are referred to as "Urban Centers" and are defined as population clusters of 1000 or more people, with a density of at least 200/km2 City of Australia Australia is the 13th richest country in the world. It has many natural resources such as gold, fish, diamonds etc. In result, this means Australia has a big amount of income on exports. It is the worlds 12th largest economic country and has the 5th highest capital income. Australia is ranked 35th on the Literacy Rate. Through out this research we have learned a lot about the country and interesting facts about it too. We felt that this geography project was a good experience to share about the specific country. We learned that Australia's United Nations HDI was rated at second place world wide. We also learned the literacy rate, birth rate, fertility rate, death rate and the life expectancy rate. What we found very interesting about Australia was that it was the direst inhabited continent in the world and that Australia is the biggest island but also the smallest continent in the world. The reason why we chose to do Australia was because it sounded like a interesting place and we wanted to know more about it. Australia's national animal are kangaroos, emus and koala bears. The official animals are most likely to be a kangaroo or emu which is the official bird. Australia has never adopted a official animal. Both these animals both appear on the Australia's coat of arms. Kangaroos can't walk backwards and emu's cannot either so they are symbolic of Australia's determination to move forward as a nation. Thanks for Watching! Land Uses Kangaroo Emu One of the main land uses in Australia is agriculture, which is used for 62% of the continent (437 million hectares). It is a big factor because it supports 1.6 million jobs, and the exports earn $27.5 billion. Australia has good land to grow many different types of crops, wheat etc. It is one of the driest country in the world, with the least rainfalls. Farmers in Australia supply 93% of Australia's daily food source. Some of the different agriculture zones are the High Rainfall Zone (rains a lot so a lot of plants), Wheat Belt (between west coast and arid zone so produces wheat etc.), and Pastoral Zone (where most livestock are raised). Koala Bear Crops cover 2, 960 km2 while pastures cover 4,049,000 km2 and are worth $11.6 million. Forestry is also an important land use. It covers 2% (1,450,000 km2) of Australia. It is increasing since less agriculture land is being planted because there is so much in Australia. 56% (430 million hectares) of land is used for livestock grazing an semi-grazing regions. Livestock industries are worth %11.6 million. Minimal area are areas that are private, and are reserved as crown land. Australia has the 6th largest area out of 194 countries. Australia's Government Time Zones Australia has a very stable and strong liberal democratic political system. The time zones in Australia are UTC+ 9:30, UTC+8, and UTC+10:00. The capital of Australia is Canberra while the largest and wide known city of Australia is Sydney. Australia's federation consists of 6 States and 2 Territories. States: New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania Territories: Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory The Sydney Opera House is one of the most popular places in the world, with more than 4.5 million (estimated) visits a year. Another main attraction in Australia is Perth, a city in Australia with many sight-seeing and wildlife, galleries, museums etc., and Tasmania, an island with many spectacular beaches, mountains and lagoons. The Chief Executive of Australia is Queen Elizabeth 2. Europeans first explored Australia in the 17th century. In 1770, James Cook claimed Australia for Britain, naming it New South Wales. Later, it became part of the British Empire. It was used as an outdoor prison when Britain prisons were too overcrowded. However, in 1901, Australia became a federation and an individual country, but is still governed under the Commonwealth of the Queen.

The mainland of Australia and Tasmania (a large island in Australia) are surronded by thouseands of small islands (ex. Kangaroo Islands, Fraser Island etc.)
