Canberra - Canberra Peace Park in Autumn
Australia

Some nice autumn colours in the late afternoon at Canberra Peace Park which is an area sandwiched between the National Library and Lake Burley Griffin.

To be honest I had to google for a while to find the name of this place as previously I wasn't aware that this area, which consists of three squares on flat ground (if you look at an aerial view of Google maps for instance), even had a name. Just about every Canberran would know the National Library and LBG of course, but this little park here I'm not so sure that it's wildly popular.

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.
