Major Commodities - Wool
Australia's woolgrowers have firmly established the nation as a high-quality and reliable source of natural fibre, successfully supplying wool markets at all corners of the globe from the world of high-fashion in Europe to the bourgeoning Chinese market.
While Australian agricultural production has diversified since the days of 'riding the sheep's back', Australian wool producers have maintained their position as a dominant producer and exporter of wool.
