RABBIT BREEDS IN AUSTRALIA AND THEIR COLOURS

Note: We have not been allowed import rabbits (except from New Zealand) since the late 1990s. Some breeds have been allowed to die out (we used to have Beverens and Silvers, for example). Others we never had at all. So you will not find examples of Belgian Hares, Lionheads, Lionhead Lops, Continental Giants, Meissner Lops, English Lops, Giant Papillons, Rhinelanders, Hulstlanders, Golden Glavcots, etc. etc.)
