Most of Australia's terrain is made up of semi-arid desert but it also boasts a range of other habitats, including alpine heaths and tropical rainforests, which are filled with a wide variety of eucalyptus trees. Under the Biodiversity Action Plan some areas in Australia have been set aside as protected ecosystems in order to preserve them. The South-East and South-West corners of the country enjoy a temperate climate while the Northern part has a tropical climate - part tropical rainforests, part grassland and desert.
