Chittering Valley Orange Trees
Chittering Valley has quite a lot to offer, but you need to know what you are looking for and where to look. There are many walk trails in the hills, but it's very hard to find any information about them (if there are any at all).
This place here - although going right through private property, is (believe or not) a well marked trail - that is if you know that the white stakes mark the trail not the rows of the orange trees in the orchard. At first I was bit hesitant to enter the property - especially when I saw a shotgun shells laying here and there on the ground, but after speaking to neighbours I was ensured that it is ok to go and I wouldn't be shot in my back ;)
Nevertheless I decided not to pick any oranges...

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!
