On vast uninhabited territories the most ancient mammals, marsupials, almost unchanged over millions of years, live. Wild jungle encircles coastal areas, and penguins and seals splashing here from Antarctica splash around capes at the southern tip of the mainland …

Generally speaking, Australia’s paradox is “set” by its very location: after all, it seems to the inhabitants of Continue reading
