There are many factors that contribute to Australia being the unique land that it is. These factors include its size, shape, location, plant and animal life, its exclusive landforms and its natural and aboriginal heritage areas.
The main reasons that Australia’s size and shape are considered to be so exceptional are quite astonishing. These reasons include things such as Australia being the largest island country on earth having an area of 7,682,300 km squared This making it the largest country in the southern hemisphere and the sixth largest country in the world.
Australia is situated in between three of the earth’s major oceans, the Pacific, the Indian and the southern ocean. This inimitable location is the foundation for the immense fluctuation of Australia’s climate, causing us to experience weather ranging from large seas, cyclones and powerful storms generated from low pressure systems to long periods of calm weather even droughts. Australia is also frequently affected by El Nino and el-nina, further contributing to its ever-changing climate.
Australia is home to a variety of diverse and distinctive plants and animals. What makes Australian plants and animals stand out from the rest is their amazing adoptions to the Australian climate. Plant and animal life has learned to cope with the harsh conditions of the Australian outback by evolving into creatures that can cope with high temperatures and lack of water.
In Australia there are many astounding landforms that help to contribute to its identity. Landforms such as airs rock, the Great Dividing Range and the great Australian desert all are world-renowned, each one being a natural phenomenon in its self.

Another thing that Australia is distinguished for is its natural and aboriginal heritage areas. There are many regions across the country that are protected for their natural beauty or historical significance, examples of these areas are places such as the Great Barrier Reef (the largest known coral reef on the planet) the Kimberley Plateau in north western Australia and Airs rock in central Australia. Although these areas are some of Australia’s finest there is still much controversy surrounding them, for instance the Kimberly Plateau is rich with minerals and politicians are debating whether to use it as a mining resource or to leave it as a natural, aboriginal heritage area. The government is also debating whether to let tankers and other large vessels pass through the Great Barrier Reef because of the high risk of oil and other leakages that often occur damaging or even destroying the reef.
Australia is a beautiful and exceptional land that can be distinguished from anywhere. Its intriguing topography and its isolated setting puts it on par with no other place in the world and people should take time to realise just how unique it actually is.
