Australian Bush

Australian Bush

The Australian Bush is unique, coloured by many extraordinary landscapes and wildlife that are found nowhere else on the planet. Our extraordinary forests are made up of some of the oldest and tallest trees on earth, and are enjoyed by walkers, campers and families for an immersive experience to get away from the pace of everyday life and unwind.
 
Trees are not only beautiful, they provide sanctuaries for Australia’s iconic and endangered animals including koalas, wallabies, bilbies, frogs and bats. The Australian Bush is vital for our clean air and water, providing the earth with an ability to breathe and us with a healthy future.

You can help protect our Australian Bush with a few simple actions:
