Whitlock Island

Whitlock Island is an island near Jurien Bay in Western Australia.

The island has an area of 5.24 ha, is located 2.4 km from the mainland, at the southern end of Jurien Bay, and has a maximum elevation of 10 m.

The island is part of the Turquoise Coast islands nature reserve group, a chain of 40 islands spread over a distance of 150 km.

The former Carnarvon Tramway crosses the northern part of the island and the old Whitlock station is still present.

A population of Jurien Bay skinks, a threatened species, is known to inhabit the island. Dibblers were discovered on Boullager and Whitlock Islands in 1985; they represent the only original island populations of the species left.

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.
