Loads of Australian animals are represented, like this koala. Did you know koalas are often called bears? But actually they aren't bears, they are marsupials - which means that as a baby, they are carried in their mother's pouch.

One of the things Bondi Beach is famous for is sharks. Swimmers and surfers have to be careful and special shark spotters are there to keep an eye on the waves and warn watersports fans in case they need to get out of the sea.

Some of the kites are a bit scary! Check out this huge spider in its web. This is meant to be one of Australia's most famous spiders - the redback spider. It has a very venomous bite! It feeds on insects, lizards and even sometimes snakes. Its bite can also be harmful to animals and humans - yikes!
