The Australian Pavilion is in a setting with typical Australian trees and shrubs, flowers - and a mob of kangaroos. A coral wonderland represents part of the Great Barrier Reef. The pavilion is set on a steel and concrete pillars, and sloping walls of glass and aluminum aid natural lighting. At the entrance, four large murals depict aspects of Australia's role in the Man and his World story. Visitors to the pavilion proceed by a spiral ramp to main hall exhibits on Australian achievement and prospect. En route they view large colour transparencies showing typical Australians. Thus between environment and achievement, in the spirit of Man and his World, people have their place. Visitors using specially-designed chairs in the main hall hear the recorded voices of famous Australians talking on subjects relating to the display. In the science area, a model radio-telescope revolves before a panorama of the Southern night sky. Canberra, Australia's capital, is featured in a Way of Life display and National Development has a working model of the giant Snowy Mountains hydro-electric and irrigation project. Contemporary art and the bark paintings of the Aborigines are shown.

The Australia Pavilion was a sleek and streamlined building. The country's seal can be seen over the entrance way. (CD #7 Set 14 #12)  


While the guidebook claimed there would be a  "mob" of kangaroos on display, this one looks very lonely indeed. (CD #13 Set 33 #23)  


This display of coral and shells gave visitors a taste of the beauty awaiting at the Great Barrier Reef - and a place to toss their spare change. (CD #13 Set 33 #25)
