Cape Borda Lighthouse Cemetery

Panorama of Cape Borda lighthouse keepers cemetery. The cemetery is several kilometres east of Cape Borda at Harvey's Return because of insufficient top soil on top of the rocky Cape Borda.

Around 16 graves are a sombre reminder how remoteness and lack to health care took its toll on early European settlers. Harvey's Return was the old landing site for the lightstation before this remote area had road access because the steep cliffs at Cape Borda do not allow for landing of ships or transport of goods to the top of the cape.

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.
