    Cultural facts about Australia

     

    In Australia, there is more desert than cities. The outback is very large between 60 and 70 percent of the country.

     

    Australia is an island, a country, and a continent! Can you imagine?!

     

    There are two very famous monuments in Australia:

    - The Great Barrier Reef: it's the biggest reef in the world. But it is endangered because of pollution and climate change.

    - Uluru: it is not a mountain. It's the biggest rock in the world.

     

    In Australia, there are many names from the British colony. For example, “New South Wales” or “Queensland”. Today, it's not a colony but a democracy. Queen Elizabeth II (the second) is the monarch.

     

    Sydney is not the capital city. It's the largest city. (Canberra is the capital).
