Australia

From a naturalistic standpoint, Australia is unique. Its ancient geology has produced marvellous landscapes like the spectacular rock formations of the Outback, above all the famous sandstone monolith of Ayers Rock, but also boundless deserts and plateaus, waterfalls, salt lakes, swamps, rainforests, the bush and its gigantic eucalyptuses, and the Great Barrier Reef. It is no coincidence that the country has over five hundred national parks and nineteen World Heritage Sites.

But Australia is also unique when it comes to fauna: in addition to its native species – kangaroos, koalas, and dingoes, to name the most iconic – we also find wallabies, sea lions, crocodiles, pelicans, and penguins, making the country a must-see destination for anyone who loves to observe nature in action.
