Sydney From Kirribilli

This is the view from the "best seat in the house" for seeing Sydney Cove, the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour bridge. Taken from just across the water at Kirribilli, this is the ideal spot to sit and observe the ferries coming and going and the boat movements in the harbour. On this day the cruise liner "Voyager of the Seas" was moored at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. It is the summer holidays and families are coming from Circular Quay by ferry to the nearby Luna Park for a day of fun in the sun with the harbour providing a beautiful backdrop.

Ceci est un aperçu de 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!
