Australia

This gigantic country, the sixth largest in the world ranking, is one of the most impressive places that exist. Its natural wonders, its variety of landscapes and climates, its peculiar and varied wildlife and its modern cities sharing territory in perfect harmony with the natural environment, make this country a must visit for all adventure travelers.

Its cultural heritage of more than 40000 years, with the arrival of the first aborigines, make of Australia a territory with a very special energy. Its millennial culture based on a spiritual relationship with the land and nature, has been inherited little by little by the multicultural population that inhabits it in the present. You just have to take a short walk to realize the respect they have for nature and animal life and how they try to preserve the environment in every step they take. What strikes me the most is that most wild animals do not fear man and that is only possible when you respect them as equals.

Climate

It has a temperate climate most of the year, but due to its large size the climate varies depending on its zones. The northern areas enjoy a warm climate almost all year round and the winter in the south is somewhat colder. The coldest areas would be Melbourne and Tasmania, but they are still quite moderate climates. It is a fairly dry country, with annual rainfall of 600mm. The temperatures from Brisbane to Melbourne usually vary between 5º and 20º in winter and 15º and 35º in summer. In the northern area, the annual average is usually 30º. In the desert areas the climate varies more.

Fauna and flora

Although much of the country is desert, there is a wide variety of habitats. Due to its varied climate and its isolation from other continents, the Australian fauna and flora is unique. Most of its plants and animals are endemic to the area. Most plants are adapted to fire and drought and have legumes capable of growing on poor nutrient soils. In addition to the best known koalas, kangaroos, equidnas, wombats and Tasmanian devil, they have some of the most poisonous animals on the planet, including jellyfish, octopuses, spiders and snakes.

Geography

Australia has a coastline of 25760km and the largest coral reef in the world with more than 2000km. Its highest mountain is the Manson peak with 2745m and has the largest monolith of the planet, the Uluru, with 9km of contour and 348m of high. 40% of the territory is a desert area and is the driest inhabited country in the world. Its other 60% is composed of a rich variety of forests, thick forests, meadows, mangroves and lagoons.

Sports

If for some reason the Australians are famous for their great love of sports. These gladiators can not live without mountain and sea sports. They dominate water sports in the world rankings and are very present in competitions of renown like the Ironman. Thanks to its mild climate, you can see Australian people practicing sport in parks and beaches every day from early morning. Crossfit at 6:00 am in Sydney Hyde Park?
