Elizebeth Street Mall
Hobart

Early morning at the Elizabeth Street Mall in Downtown Hobart, Tasmania: one of the most popular shopping areas in the city. It is host to both major department stores and smaller, locally owned establishments. Areas in the mall are available to community groups to stage individual events. Vehicle access is strictly controlled and drivers are issued mats to place under their vehicles in order to prevent damage to the clay pavers from oil leaks.

The clay paver arrangement was designed by Australian artist Paul Zika, Head of Painting at the University of Tasmania. Elizabeth Street is named after Elizabeth Macquarie who was the wife of Lachlan Macquarie, the Governor of New South Wales, Australia from 1810-1821.

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.
