Australia with its six states and two territories, is a country of contrasts - from the cities on the coast,
the untamed tropical rainforests, the golden beaches, the Great Barrier Reef of Queensland, the lush fern gullies of Victoria, the peaks of Tasmania to desert towns in the outback with
their stunning formations like Uluru (Ayers Rock) and world-heritage parks like Kakadu. The aboriginals are the world's oldest civilization and because of Australia's isolation,
many different forms of plants and animals developed here that are not seen elsewhere in the world. Those who go "down under" are captivated by the country, the people, the
experiences and the contrasts. Click on the buttons to the left or the States and Territories button to learn about each of these regions within Australia.
