Our new series of country riddles continues today with four where the answer is Australia.
These riddles for kids are therefore ideal for using with our other geography riddles as well.
The first three of them are rhyming riddles while the fourth asks your children What Am I?
With that final idea, read the first line to your kids and ask them to guess the answer. Knowing that they have to guess a country will help them narrow things down, but it’s unlikely that they’ll guess that the answer is Australia.
If they don’t guess correctly, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to guess again. If they don’t guess correctly on this turn, read them the third clue. Keep doing this until they guess correctly or they run out of clues.

And koalas eat the eucalyptus tree
