Thring Rock
Australia

Thring rock is a very remote landmark in Western Australia. This and many other rocky outcrops around this area were once used by the cattle drovers while they make their way South with cattle from the Kimberley region down to the gold fields of the South West. The Canning Stock Route was one of the most isolated stock routes in the world, almost the entire route is classed as desert and only 2 settlements exist in the entire 1800 kilometres of its length. Today the route is popular in the 4 wheel drive community and in Australian terms it is often seen as the ultimate challenge for man and machine. The route covers a large verity of terrain, from sand dunes to creek crossings to rocks. Much of the area is flat but when rocky outcrops come up like this one, it is hard to resist climbing them to have a look over this seemingly endless land.

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.
