From Colonization to Urbanization Aboriginal settlers arrived on the continent from Southeast Asia about 40,000 years before the first Europeans began exploration in the 17th century. No formal claims were made until 1770, when Capt. James COOK took possession in the name of Great Britain.

Слайд 5

Colonization and Urbanization II The British first used Australia as a penal colony because of the lack of prison space in the UK. British posts were set up around the perimeter of the “Outback”; which was where the prisoners were kept. These posts grew into cities as more British ventured to Australia. Eventually, these developed into the major cities of Australia. Colonization is an example of one of the many ways that human involvement has shaped Australia today.

Слайд 7

The Outback The Outback is a physical “no-mans land”. Also called “The Bush”, the environment is not as human friendly as is Australia’s coasts. Therefore, the population numbers of the outback are very sparse. Because of the physically rugged land, there are few towns; such as Cuber Peaty.

Слайд 8

The Outback II Because of the physical nature of the outback, Australia’s cities are becoming very urbanized. This is an example of the physical environment that has shaped Australia.

The Great Barrier Reef The Great Barrier Reef off the northeast coast, the largest coral reef in the world, is threatened by increased shipping and its popularity as a tourist site. It holds numerous species of fish, marine mammals, as well as aquatic plants and corals. One section of the reef, Dangerous Reef, has one of the worlds greatest population of great white sharks.
