Australia's Neighbouring Countries - Poster Pack

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 9 pages | Years: 3 - 6

Familiarise your students with Australia’s neighbouring countries with a pack of detailed maps.

Explore the Geography of Australia’s Neighbouring Countries

While the continent of Australia is also a single country, it is surrounded by many island nations that we consider to be our neighbours.

This colourful collection of classroom maps is the perfect resource to accompany your Geography lessons on Australia and its neighbouring countries. It includes detailed maps of the following island nations/territories: 

  • New Zealand
  • Timor-Leste
  • Papua New Guinea
  • New Caledonia
  • The Solomon Islands
  • Indonesia
  • Singapore
  • Fiji
  • Vanuatu.

Create a Classroom Display of Australia and Its Neighbours

This set of posters has many versatile applications for learning about Australia and its neighbours. Here are some ideas:

  1. Project the maps onto your interactive whiteboard to familiarise your students with the human and physical geography of each country.
  2. Provide students with a smaller version of the posters to paste into their workbooks.
  3. Create a classroom display about Australia and its surrounding countries. Encourage students to add facts about each country around the display.
