  • Interesting infographic! I liked it. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s a question for you: I’ve heard there are some wild camels in Australia and I know they’re not indigenous to your country, but I would like to know where they are wondering about. I appreciate your reply as I couldn’t find it on the image you’ve shared.

      Hi Rahman,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. To answer the question about camels, yes there are around 800,000 feral (that means exotic pest) camels in Australia. It’s not on the image we shared, as this image is about ‘Big Tourist Things’, like the Big Banana. These are models that are huge, and people walk inside of them -they’re tacky tourist attractions.

      Feral camels are a massive problem in outback Australia. They destroy precious waterholes and vegetation that native animal and bird species need to survive. They have contributed to the extinction of a number of native mammal species.

      I’ve included a link to the Australian Feral Camel Management Project’s website. This has a map of where camels are in Australia, and lots of other information you’ll find useful.

      Hope this helps, Amanda

    Love the big things! Haven’t seen most of them but the big golden guitar in Tamworth is my favourite so far.

    There are really lots of wonderful things in Australia. From the people to the tourist destinations and now the big things that you can only see in the Land Down Under.

    Hi,
    I have been to the Australia and the infographics you have shared is great. I was afraid of the Big Crocodiles and sharks though. This is something that I don’t find very fascinating.

    Great information about Australia.

    Thanks
    Susan
