Let's explore Australia's Northern Territory

Hi, I’m Freya.

My Uncle Bob has been to Australia's Northern Territory in Oceania and sent me a postcard.

Let's explore Australia too!

Australia is really far away - it's on the opposite side of the Earth to the UK. It is sunny and hot.

Kangaroos, koalas and lots of spiders and snakes live in Australia.

Alice Springs is a town in the centre of Australia, very far from the sea. It is found in an area of Australia called the Northern Territory.

Oceania is a continent which is made up of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and many other smaller islands. Oceania is home to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world, and home to lots of ocean wildlife.

Uluru is a very well-known rock formation in the Northern Territory.

Do you remember what we saw in the Northern Territory?
