While Australia is famous for its beaches, the waters off the Australian coast can be unforgiving, with large swell and strong rips. This FACT indicates the total number of drowings that occurred on coastal beaches in each Australian state and territory throughout 2016-2017. New South Wales had the highest number of coastal drownings at 32, while the Northern Territory was the lowest at 3. No data has been entered for the Australian Capital Territory, as there is no coast.
This FACT indicates the number of national parks found in each Australian state. The numbers for each state includes national parks, regional parks and conservation parks only. Forests and forest reserves are not included in the count. Australia is known around the world for its incredible variety of wildlife, including flora and fauna, with each state being host to many native species. Wildlife parks and sanctuaries tend to bring in a large amount of tourism in Australia and their conservation is considered important for future generations.
This FACT indicates the number of people in each capital with Hindu affiliation per 100,000 persons. Hinduism is the dominant religion of the Indian subcontinent. It is described as a fusion of numerous and varied Indian cultures and traditions with diverse roots and no single founder (Wikipedia, 2014). It is most widely practiced in Nepal and India.
As per the 2016 Census results, the city with the highest proportion of people who identify as Hindu is Sydney, at 3,527 per 100,000 persons. The city with the lowest proportion is Hobart, at 731 people per 100,000.
This FACT indicates the percentage of households using recycled or grey water in each Australian state. Grey water is the relatively clean wastewater from showers, baths, basins or washing machines, used for watering gardens. It cannot be stored, and is sorced directly from households, meaning that dwellings require grey water systems in place in order to use it. The data was collected from the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2013. Statistics for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory could not be obtained.
Whether watching or participating, Australians love sport, as both the weather and vast amounts of space are perfect for physical activity and group sports. Professional sporting teams create entertainment, interaction and economic benefits to a city, while also encouraging a community spirit.
This FACT indicates the total number of professional sports teams per 100,000 people within a state (2018). A statewide basis was chosen due to the travelling nature of sports teams and their fans, as well as the wide range of stadiums in which these professional sports teams play in. Professional sports teams include both male and female teams competing in upper league national sporting tournaments or competitions. These include the AFL, AFLW, NRL, BBL, WBBL, Sheffield Shield, NBL, WNBL, A-League, W-League, ABL, Super Rugby, NRC, and Suncrop Super Netball. Motorsport is not included.
The city with the most sporting teams per 100,000 inhabitants is Canberra with 1.510. The city with the lowest is Brisbane with 0.425. Darwin does not qualify as it does not have a professional sports team.
