Exploring Downunder: An Australian Geography Journey for Kids

Australia is a land filled with great big things. There is the Great Barrier Reef, Great Artesian Basin, Great Dividing Range, Great Australian Bight, Great Victorian Desert, Great Sandy Desert, and the Great Ocean Road. Our mainland has the big rock—Uluru, the biggest salt lake, the biggest coal port, the biggest fence, and the biggest group of feral camels. We have even made our own big tourist attractions like the Big Banana, Big Pineapple, and the Big Lobster—just to name a few. And one of the very great big things about Australia is how diverse the geography is.

Forming a mental map of Australia’s geography in the mind of a child is what this book aspires to do. Your child will learn about Australia’s mountains, lakes, and significant geographical features, region by region and place by place, it also takes your child on a delightful detour to visit Australia’s territories and neighbouring countries.

Enrich your child’s knowledge of Australia, as we gently unfold a journey Exploring Down Under!
