Bush is not specific to the Australian wilderness. Outback is appropriate answer to that clue, but as the letters aren't there, the clue should be amended.

Can't believe I found myself typing "shrub" for that clue, but couldn't get bush. Sigh.

Just as 'chart' is not unique to navigational maps. Not all residents of Belgrade are Serbs. Everest has other camps. The quiz does not say "wilderness found in Australia and nowhere else".

As an Australian, I agree this clue was pretty bad. The term "bush" is usually used to describe to rural undeveloped area in Australia, but not necessarily wilderness. City-folk in Australia commonly use the term to describe anywhere non-urban.

I wish you would label these quizzes "Boggle" so that I would know not to bother clicking. What the hell is Generator anyway?

Boggles require that you move from letter to letter by adjacent moves. There are no such restrictions in these generator puzzles. They're called generators simply because the grid of letters 'generates' a whole bunch of words. I guess you can avoid both "Boggle" and "Generator" in the future.

The "Earth's Outermost Layer" should be changed to "Earth's Outermost Rock Layer". I was stuck on the atmosphere.

Close, but no, since hectare contains two es and the rules only allow for any grid letter being used once in any answer.

the way the grid is shown i saw the danish city arhus and couldn't not see it. maybe add that too, except that it is usually written aarhus on account of the accent.
