Bush cooking
Australia

While traveling east on the Australian Trans-Continental Railway service track we discovered a train crash. From some evidence we found on the wreckage the crash appeared to have happened sometime in 2007. We decided to make camp between 2 of the wrecked train cars. This panorama captures us cooking our meal for the night, a strange combination of curry, macaroni and chips. It was the loudest of our camps so far with trains going past every hour at certain times during the night! Amazing experience but a scary place to camp at the same time. When will the next train derail?? Tonight?

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.
