Australia (by Ania Juszczyk, III d LO)
Australia is a large island located in the south-eastern part of the world. The capital of Australia is Canberra and Sydney is the largest city. The Australian animals are very rare and specific only for that area. These species, such as kangaroos or koalas, were discovered only in Australia. The native Australian people are called Aborigines.
Aborigines (by Kamil Kordela, I a LO)
Aborigines are indigenous people of Australia. They arrived in Australia about 40 to 60 thousand years ago and probably came from the islands of Southeast Asia. Their main activities were hunting and gathering in coastal areas and fisheries. Aborigines led a nomadic life, roamed vast areas establishing temporary camps near water and as soon as food supplies ran out, they set off on their journey.
Melbourne (by Marek Łącz, I a LO)
Melbourne is the second most populated city in Australia and the capital of the state Victoria. It has got the biggest harbour in Australia, and large part of automotive industry. There are located many sports objects. 9 out of 16 Australian Football League teams are based in Melbourne. It’s the fourth city in the world, which has the biggest number of students from abroad. Over 16 thousand Poles live in Melbourne.
Kangaroos (by Kamil Szulik, I a LO)
Kangaroo is the most famous marsupial living in Australia. It moves jumping on long strong hind legs. During the fast (50 km/h) running the jumps can even be longer than 10 feet and higher than 3 meters. The long tail helps to keep the balance while jumping, and also serves as a support when resting.
Kangaroo hits it on the ground to warn its fellows when they are in danger. His front limbs are short and ended in claws. The animals uses them to pick up food. The most characteristic feature of these animals is the pouch on the abdomen of the female. Tiny baby kangaroo goes into this bag right after it’s born. It is 3 inches long and it stays in this pouch until the eighth month of its life.
When famous Captain James Cook reached the coast of Australia, he met Aborigines and asked them:
“What is this strange jumping animal?”
“Kangaroo,” was the answer.
In the language of the original inhabitants of Australia, the word did not mean, however, the name of the animal, but simply: “I do not understand you.”
