Bruny Island Neck Upper Lookout
Tasmania

The upper lookout platform at the Bruny Island Neck Game Reserve offers visitors sweeping views of the area. Looking south the isthmus divides Adventure Bay and the Tasman Sea (to the left) from Isthmus Bay and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel (to the right). The game reserve is home to fairy penguins which nest in a rookery on the east side of the neck. To the northeast on the horizon Cape Queen Elizabeth can be seen.

The small stone monument to the north of the platform is to preserve the memory of Truganini, the last full blood Tasmanian Native who witnessed the extinction of her people by the colonial Europeans. The long set of stairs to the platform are called The Truganini Steps.

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.
