Aussie Islands by the Numbers

Aussie Islands by the Numbers 




In our islands issue, this little breakdown seems appropriate. There are 8222 islands in total in the realm of Australia. Not surprisingly, the ACT is the only state or territory not to have one. WA has 3747, Queensland has 1955, Tasmania has 1000, NT has 887, SA has 346, Victoria has 184, and NSW has 103. The NT can lay claim to three of the largest four islands in Australia: Melville (5786km2), Groote Eylandt (2285km2) and Bathurst (1693km2). The second largest is SA’s Kangaroo island (4416km2). *Source: Australian Government Geoscience Australia.
