Australia

Australia is the smallest of the seven continents and it is located in the Southern Hemisphere. Australia is an island surrounded by the Indian and the Pacific oceans.

The country is home to many animal species like kangaroos, wombats, koalas, and dingos. By the way, did you know that kangaroos cannot walk backward?

Mrs. McKnight’s Pavlova

The dessert was created in honor of the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova after one of her tours of Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s.
