Cloudy Bay, South Bruny National Park in Tasmania, 2
Tasmania

Cloudy Bay is an impressive spectacle of ocean shoreline. Even though it is home to the Bruny Island Surf Classic there are many days when the 5km beach is deserted. Located inside the South Bruny National Park in the Australian State of Tasmania, the bay is surrounded by coastal heathland habitat that supports many endangered and rare species of birds among other creatures.

The beach once supported a sea shell industry to supply glassmakers with raw materials but now it is primarily enjoyed for the fantastic waterfront scenery and surfing conditions for expert surfers.

Directly to the south, the bay opens up to the Tasman Sea. Beyond that, the next body of land is Antarctica.

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.
