State Emblems of New South Wales, Australia

Danny from Techie Kids asked about my state of New South Wales...

Hi, Danny.

So I could share some photos with you, I thought it better to answer with an extended comment.

While New South Wales isn't Australia's largest state, it is the state with the highest population. New South Wales has an area of 809,444 sq km (312,528 sq mi). This makes it larger than Texas but only half the size of Alaska. Western Australia is our largest state and is about 50% larger than Alaska.
