Australia's central region is mostly uninhabited due to the desert climate with temperatures ascending up to 50°C during the day. Therefore, also flora and fauna is less diverse and this habitat is dominated by extremophile organisms that adapted to the extreme weather conditions in this region.
In the southern and south-eastern region of the continent, climate is more or less moderate. This region is also habitat to the only egg laying mammal in the world – the platypus. Temperatures in this region can be compared with temperatures in central Europe. The southern island Tasmania lies within a more moderate zone so that temperatures in winter are generally higher in this region than on the mainland. Therefore, this region is perfect for everyone who loves nature but prefers moderate temperatures.
A journey to Australia will be a delight and you will make unforgettable memories, no matter which region of this huge country you will choose to visit. Besides countless spots of natural beauty, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about the culture and history of this manifold continent – from the first arrival of the aboriginals to the discovery by European colonists.
