    7. 7. How do Location, Climate, & Natural Resources Impact Trade? Australia Notes
    8. 8. Location » China is Australia’s neighbor to the north » Australia exports tons of natural resources to China » 1/2 of iron ore goes to China » In return, China provides Australia with affordable finished goods (cars, kitchen appliances, etc.)
    9. 9. Location » Australia’s location makes it is expensive for people to visit from other countries » Most international tourists come from New Zealand and China
    10. 10. Location » Foreign tourists create only 1/4 of Australia’s $81 billion tourist industry » Australians do the majority of tourism within their own country » Remote location in the Southern Hemisphere makes it expensive for Australians to leave & visit other countries
    11. 11. Climate » Tourists from the northern hemisphere visit Australia’s warm beaches when it is winter in their country » Tourists usually wait until spring or fall to visit the rural areas & the outback--not too hot then
    12. 12. Climate » In the non-desert regions, Australians grow many grains » Grown in inland regions of the coastal states (not too hot/dry here) » Grains include a wide range of different crops: » Wheat, barley, sorghum, rye, rice, chickpeas, lentils, & oilseeds
    13. 13. Natural Resources » Across much of Australia, the ground is barren & not ideal for farming (outback) » Many minerals are found here: gold, silver, uranium, coal, copper, & iron ore » Australia has exported nearly $400 billion worth of metals, minerals, & fuels in the past 20 years » Natural resources account for 1/3 of the country’s economy!
    14. 14. Natural Resources » Australia exports more coal & iron ore than any other country » Leads the world in mining bauxite, titanium, & diamonds » No other country has more reserves of lead, cadmium, or nickel
    15. 15. Natural Resources » Have always been important to Australian trade: » In the mid-1800s, Australia had a gold rush in the southern region » Thousands of immigrants moved to Australia to find gold » Many came from England, Ireland, Germany, & China
