AUSTRALIA is Known for:

1. Kangaroos
Australia is famous for its many marsupials (mammals with pouches).Of course, one of the most recognized is the kangaroo – and for good reason thanks to the likes of Skippy. The kangaroo is so famously Australian that it features as one of the national symbols of Australia, along with the golden wattle and emu.
2. Wine Regions
Australian love to drink a cold beer but the real jewel in Australia’s beverage crown is its wines. Australia is famous for its export of top-quality wines, and nearly every state claims theirs is the best. These are the best wine regions namely Barossa Valley, Yarra Valley, Hunter Valley, Tamar Valley and Swan Valley.
3. Surfer’s Paradise
