FLORA & FAUNA

Mother Nature was inspired when she created Australia. One of the most diverse countries on the planet, it is home to some of the world's most unique and bizarre flora and fauna. From golden wattle, eucalyptus, Kangaroo Paw and the Sturt's Desert Pea to kangaroos, emus, cuddly koalas and wombats, to more than 750 bird species including Cockatoos, Rosellas and Kookaburras.

Australia's national plant and wildlife icons certainly are a breed apart. What's more, most of them aren't found anywhere else in the world. So whether they grow in the ground or hop, burrow or slither across the countryside they really have to be seen to be believed.
