The English explorer and naturalist didn’t have very nice things to say about Australia and in this strongly-worded note, he summarized his thoughts on the continent.
But we’re not in 100% agreement with him, after all, the things he lists about Australia are actually what makes it so unique.
The landscapes may change, but Australia's dedication to natural wonders never seems to cease.
Take this koala, who knows his way around a camera a looks pretty confident filming too! Even if he looks super cute holding the camera, we can't but wonder if he has the right koala qualifications for this job...
Lizards Down Under
Nothing unusual here, just a really big lizard going for a stroll up your wall. But in all honesty, why does everything in Australia look so big and menacing? It's almost like the entire continent just isn't meant for humans?
Well, at least not meant for those who'd be scared out of their wits at the very sight of a lizard this big.
Australia is infamous for its next-level nature, from its colossal boulder formations to those long stretches of colorful coral at the Great Barrier Reef.
But still, this Lake stands out among the rest—after all, a giant bubblegum pink lake in the middle of a forest is hard to miss. But what's really weird, nobody can figure out why the lake has such a striking color.
Picture this, you're asleep and a loud racket wakes you up, so you stumble out of bed and come face to face with this strange creature.
We don't know too much about Australia's possums, except that they are adorable and apparently will try to steal all of your bananas.
