More than 10,000 beaches
With over 25,760 kilometres of coastline, Australia is jam-packed with spectacular beaches. Approximately 85% of the population lives along the coastline which means many Aussies enjoy a beach lifestyle. Yes, there are beaches throughout Europe and the rest of the world, but Australian beaches are some of the best on the planet.
Why? Wide-stretched, as far as the eye can see. Pearled-white squeaky sand and the bluest water. With no one else in sight, it is nature in it’s purest form. With endless beaches to choose from, some of the country’s finest are Noosa Heads in sunny Queensland, Bay of Fires in Tasmania, Manly Beach in Sydney and Ned’s Beach on Lord Howe’s Island.
Bushfires in Australia
Bushfires are a part of Australia, over millions of years they have shaped the landscape to what it is today. Eucalyptus forests thrive on bushfires and some of Australia’s flora has evolved and relied on bushfires for reproduction. They create new life by dropping seeds. A cycle of fire, rain and recovery, an occurrence that is well-known in Australia - the fire continent.
However, the 2019/2020 bushfires were devastating for communities of Australia and the wildlife. It is evident these fires were more intense than in previous years. Yet due to the large size of the country, 98.5% of the land was untouched by the fires. And the other 1.5% started the regeneration process, just weeks after the fires occurred.
