Fitzroy Crossing
Australia

A 4 wheel drive vehicle crosses the Fitzroy River at the old Fitzroy River crossing near the township of Fitzroy Crossing. During the wet season this river often floods very badly, on one occasion the water was 13 metres higher than the concrete river crossing seen in this photo.

The township of Fitzroy Crossing was established before the current bridge was built. The town was built in order to support the people who were waiting for the water levels to recede so that they could continue on their travels.
The Fitzroy River is thought to flow more water than any other river in Australia.

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.
