Australia's Wild Habitats

  Introduction to habitats
A quick sweep across the continent to see how the regional geology and climatic factors interact to shape the great diversity of wild Australian habitats.

  Australia's desert heart - red but not dead
We tend to clig to the green coastal rim of what is overwhelmingly a dry, red land that abounds in its own well adapted wildlife.

  Gorge(ou)s water sculptures
Gorges or Canyons - by either name they're still the same spectacular features of rocky regions scuptured over eons by rushing waters.

  Boom or bust - the salt lake way
Lake Eyre is one of the largest salt lakes in the world and it's only one of a vast Australian network.

  Ecosystem shaping with natural disasters
Survival through adaptation.

  Arid and semi arid landscapes (series)
Covering seventy percent of the country, these make up our typical Australian outback.

  Sky Islands: remnant forests from Gondwanan times (series)
Sky Islands occur in mountainous areas and act similarly to archipelago islands. These sky islands have cooler and moister climates, reflecting Australia’s cooler and wetter history. Not only do these sky islands have remnants of ancient vegetation such as snow gums, they also retain remnants of animal communities.

  Our southern seashores
Museum Victoria's series on the extraordinary diversity of marine life forms that make sci fi and alien fiction tame by comparison.
