1. Overview

These uninhabited islands came under Australian authority in 1931; formal administration began two years later. Ashmore Reef supports a rich and diverse avian and marine habitat; in 1983, it became a National Nature Reserve. Cartier Island, a former bombing range, became a marine reserve in 2000.

CIA's The World Factbook (2013)5

As a territory of Australia I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.

There isn't much information in the database for Ashmore and Cartier Islands, most likely because it is either a part of another country (i.e., a territory or posession) and therefore most international statistics are counted for the country as a whole, or, this is such an exotic place that little data exists about it.
