The Climate of Australia

The proximity to the Indian Ocean Dipole, the ocean currents, and the El Nino Southern Oscillation significantly influence the climate of Australia. The El Nino Southern Oscillation is also responsible for producing seasonal tropical low-pressure systems, which in turn lead to cyclones in northern Australia. Different parts of the country have different microclimates. For example, the south-west corner of the country has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. The south-eastern part of the country ranges from an oceanic climate (Tasmania and coastal Victoria) to a humid subtropical climate (upper half of New South Wales). The inner parts of the country have an arid to semi-arid climate type.

Flora and Fauna of Australia

Australia has a few examples of flora and fauna that are exclusive to it, such as koalas and emus, for example. The country includes a very diverse range of habitats, ranging from alpine heaths to tropical forests. It is therefore recognized as a megadiverse country. The majority of Australia’s biota is unique. Almost all species which can be observed in Australia are endemic, which means that they are unique to the Australian continent. Some interesting species of fauna include:

  • monotremes (the platypus and echidna)
  • a host of marsupials
  • Kangaroo
  • Koala
  • Wombat
  • birds such as the emu and the kookaburra
  • dingo
