Charles Knife Canyon, Exmouth

Here were are at one of the best (in my opinion) lookouts in Charles Knife Canyon in Cape Range National Park. The views are breathtaking, and you can really feel the space around you there. I arrived there just after sunset and so had to be pretty quick with capturing the moment as light conditions were changing dramatically at every minute. All travel guidebooks advise to watch it just after sunrise, and I highly reccommend it if you want to see sunrays gradually exploring that emptyness of the canyon.

This is an overview of 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!
