When it comes to celebrating all the beauty and wonder Australia has to offer, it’s hard to know where to begin.
More than 90 per cent of our wildlife is found nowhere else in the wild. This includes kangaroos, dingos, wombats, echidnas, platypus and koalas – making this a truly unique and special country.
As for our birds – Australia is sometimes referred to as the land of parrots and honeyeaters because we have so many of them.
There are more than 900 recorded Aussie bird species and almost all of our cockatoos are unique to this country. In fact, no other continent other than South America has as many parrots.
Here are six Aussie bird crafts ideal for kids to make to celebrate our unique feathered friends.
