The largest island and smallest continent in the world, Australia is not only an amazing place with a diverse and breathtakingly beautiful landscape, but also possesses a menagerie of unique flora and fauna found nowhere else on earth. Promoting and purveying everything Australian, from the wildlife to the landscape and much, much more, the nation-wide chain of Australian Geographic stores are, these days, a household name. A one-of-a-kind shopping destination, they're a top spot to buy exquisite Australian-made handicrafts, high quality souvenirs, quirky geek gadgets, educational books and science kits for children.

Initially conceived by the popular entrepreneur Dick Smith, over the last few decades Australian Geographic has opened stores in all Australia’s capital cities, as well as in other smaller regional centres and tourist hotspots. Dynamic and colourful, Australian Geographic stores have been instrumental in raising public awareness about Australia’s natural environment and the challenges we all face in protecting it for future generations.

As a shopper, one of my favourite things about Australian Geographic shops is the terrific range of Australiana books that they keep in stock. Whether you’re looking for a biography, bush-tucker cookbook, bushwalking guide, or a coffee-table book full of glossy photographs, this is one of the best places to head for. The store also purveys a good selection of Australian children’s books, encompassing diverse topics such as science, outer space, the environment and prehistoric creatures - and is therefore the perfect destination if you want to buy an educational gift for a special young person.

Another thing I love about Australian Geographic stores is all the cool and quirky geek gadgets that they sell. Whether you’re a homeschooler seeking resources for science lessons, are looking for educational toys for your kids, or are hitched to a geek, this is the place to come for good quality products that help us learn about our world in a fun, dynamic way. With such an exciting range of goodies in their stores, Australian Geographic demonstrates to both the young and the young-at-heart that science really is fascinating, and that studying it can be a truly enjoyable experience.

Although Australian Geographic’s range of geek gadgets is far too large to write about in a brief article such as this, a few products the discerning wannabe scientist might enjoy includes robotic UFOs, bluetooth weather stations, remote-controlled helicopters, Hayne’s combustion engines, flight recorder cameras and Oregon Scientific Smart Globes. There is also an immense selection of telescopes for budding astronomers, as well as great games and puzzles to enjoy with the family - and much more. In addition to all the aforementioned high-tech goodies, very young children are well catered for with special craft kits, loads of dinosaur stuff, Yozo Gigi Balls and heaps of other snazzy diversions.
