Australia and Kiwanis

Australia is a natural wonderland of beautiful beaches, crystal blue waters, amazing rock formations and pristine rainforests. Australia is made of of six states and two territories as shown on the map above.

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world and has the lowest population density per square kilometer. The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimate the population to be 26,638,544 as at 30th June, 2023.

Australia has 16 world heritage listed properties with its historic townships, bustling cities, vivid landscapes and exotic flora and fauna all adding to its unique appeal. Much of the exotic flora and fauna cannot be found anywhere else in the world and the lifestyle is second to none.

The culture and customs consists of a rich tapestry of nationalities including traditions, legends, myths and folklore. The indigenous “Dream Time” forms the base of tens of thousands of years of spiritual aboriginal art and culture.

In Australia over 200 different languages and dialects are spoken, including 45 indigenous languages. The most commonly spoken languages (other than English) are Italian, Greek, Cantonese, Arabic, Vietnamese and Mandarin.

Australia is a BIG country and Kiwanis Clubs are located in each state and territory mostly near the Capital cities.

Many tourists believe that they can visit Sydney, Melbourne and Uluru (Aires Rock) in a week. This is NOT possible.

Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Our clubs looks out for their community and the Kiwanis international organisation takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty. Our clubs in Australia are generous with their time. Clubs are creative and passionate about making a difference and have fun along the way!

For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things can happen.
