Australia's Flag

There are many animals on mainland Australia, Tasmania and on the nearby islands, including New Zealand, New Guinea, and Indonesia (to name but a few). Many animals are unique to this part of the world.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef in the world; it is off the northeast coast of Australia. There are also many flightless birds, monotremes, and marsupial mammals in Australia and nearby islands. Some dinosaur fossils have also been found in Australia; these reptiles roamed Australia over 65 million years ago.

On these pages, Australia is regarded as an island and a continent (but not as a country; political affiliations are ignored).

The following is a sampling of these amazing creatures. Click on an animal to go to a printout:
