What makes Australia unique?
Australia is a very unique and diverse continent that is an island and consists of one nation. Its physical features and cultural environment make it different to other places. Australia is a multicultural country meaning that it respects all cultures, religions, ethnicities and races. Such features give Australia a special, recognised identity. Because of Australia’s long geographic isolation it has resulted in an exceptional variety of plant and animal life. Most of these are found nowhere else in the world. It is said that Australia has about one million native species. Its uniqueness is due to its flora and fauna which are native to Australia. The flora in Australia is truly amazing. Australia has a wide range of flora, like bottle brushes, waratahs, and eucalyptus trees. Its flora is very important for the habitat and food of its fauna. These plants definitely contribute to its colourful and beautiful environment. As for its fauna, it is important to Australia in keeping them safe. Some creatures unique to Australia are the kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, emus, koalas, kookaburras, as well as many more. If u look on the Australian emblem u should see two animals unique to Australia, the emu and the kangaroo. Australia is a major contributor to medical research especially in the cancer research section. The continent has spectacular scenery, vast landscapes and a variety of colours.
