Canning Stock Route Well 49
Australia

Originally the Canning Stock Route was used to drive cattle from the Kimberley in the North West of Western Australia, down to the gold fields of the South. Today and since the invention of road trains the only use the "canning" sees is by the odd keen 4wd enthusiast. Here a traveller uses a bucket to fetch some water from at a well near the North end of the stock route. It’s quite easy to tell from looking at the traveller that travelling on the Canning is no simple task, it is 1700kms of sand, dust, dunes and corrugations. The traveller spent the rest of the day washing trying to get the sticky red dust off of himself and his clothes before entering what he would class as “civilisation” the following day.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
