Welcome to: Australian LandmarksEdit

Let's discover the natural and man-made landmarks of Australia!

I have included some links to useful websites where you can gather information on famous Australian landmarks. Use this information to create a short 1 to 2 paragraph summary of your landmark for us to add to our map of Australia.

In your information summary you must include:

▪  What is the name of your landmark?

▪  Is your landmark natural or man-made?

▪  How old is your landmark? When was it formed, discovered or built?

▪  Why is your landmark important for the environment and its people, including Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people?

▪  Where is your landmark?

Make sure to check your spelling, grammar and remember to put the information you into your own words.
