On Saturday, 12 October 2002, Kuta Beach on the Indonesian island of Bali. a popular holiday destination for generations of Australians, was shattered by a terrorist attack. The horrific bombings claimed the lives of hundreds of innocent people, including 88 Australians.

"Sydney's Eastern Suburbs were devasted by the tragic loss of twenty local residents and injuries to many more.

"The community of the City of Randwick remembers all the victims and dedicates this site to those local residents who lost their lives."

The tragedy was particular cogent for residents of Coogee as six of the victims were members of the Coogee Dolphins Rugby League Club. The Dolphins' home ground is Coogee Oval and they meet at the Beach Palace Hotel at the northern end of Coogee Beach close to this memorial.

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!
