Burnside Island

Burnside Island lies off the coast of Western Australia and is around 59 hectares in size depending on the height of the tide. The southern tip of Burnside Island is located 1 km due east of the northern end of Simpson Island. The low, straight, narrow 2 km long island faces west-northwest into the gulf. It consists of the narrow high tide beach (WA 1637) backed by low scarped calcarenite bluffs, and a low grassy ridge widening to 200 m towards the northern end of the island. A 2 km wide mangrove-lined tidal creek backs the island. One kilometre to the north is Wilderness Island which is a more irregular, low 200 ha island consisting of a more exposed west-facing side.

Burnside Island is a popular bird watching and fishing location.

Burnside Island was named by Commodore Ian Burnside while surveying the area with the Royal Australian Navy.

Country - Australia

Flag of Australia
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. The population of million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest city is Sydney. The country's other major metropolitan areas are Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians for about 60,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century. It is documented that Aborigines spoke languages that can be classified into about 250 groups. After the European exploration of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, who named it New Holland, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788, a date which became Australia's national day. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the 1850s most of the continent had been explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, comprising six states and ten territories.
