  • History Millions of years ago, Australia was part of a huge continent called Gondwanaland. But then Gondwanaland slowly moved and formed several different areas of land. So, Australia became cut off from the rest of the world. Thats why the islands wildlife is so unique today. Probably, due to its geographical position, Australia was the last continent inhabited by the white man. History Millions of years ago, Australia was part of a huge continent called Gondwanaland.

  • Climate If you go to Australia it will seem to you rather an upside-down world. The seasons are the other way round. Summer is from December to February, autumn from March to May, winter from June to August, and spring from September to November. New Year is at midsummer, midwinter is in June. Hot winds blow from the north; cold wind blow from the south. The farther north you go, the hotter it gets.
