Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve
Australia

The Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve in Queensland Australia is a 52 hectare remnant of the subtropical rainforest (complex notophyll vineforest) that previously covered the southern end of the Blackall Range and valleys on the west side of the range. The Reserve is currently an ecological island with no continuous habitat linkages to other nearby remnants. On a national scale, it is significant in being one of the few remnants of subtropical rainforest growing in optimum conditions on flat deep basalt soils in a high rainfall area.

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.
