Interesting.

I'm surprised that New Zealand isn't on that list.

I guess islands are more exotic flora but have less cross species interaction than a similar sized chunk of the same climate on a bigger continent.

Followup question, if you had to move to another continent but could keep your income on a relative basis, which would you pick, placing more emphasis on geographic than geopolitical situations?

I'd pick either South America or North Asia. South America has great weather and flora, so a more outdoorsy / minimalist version of myself could be happy. I'd prefer the mountain options of South America to the ocean options of Oceania and I'm not that big of an animal person so the megafauna of Africa doesn't pull that much.

North Asia is probably even more of an unexplored frontier than northern North America. I like the more mountainous, less lake dotted terrain of Siberia / North China better than Canada and it seems all the cool features of the PNW and Alaska are mirrored over on the Asian side like the epic salmon runs and richness of megafauna.

Native American cultures. In particular Mesoamerican cultures.

As it is an Island, the unique native Fauna is certainly something that makes it special. We have an enormous coastline and thousands of spectacular beaches, but so does every other continent. I guess the Great Barrier Reef makes it special too.

Apart from that, there is some cool natural sites like Uluru, the Daintree etc. But on the whole, nothing that special apart from governance and quality of life.
Correct.

That's why you forgot eucalyptus trees. Only our continent has those.
