This is the second chamber in the Orient Cave at Jenolan Cave and although it is smaller than the main chamber it is truly a fantasy of color and form with just about every kind of crystal rock formation imaginable all intertwined and glistening in the LED illumination.

While I took this sphere image Debby was enthralled by the ribbon formation framed by stalactites while Chris took photos of the formations from the staircase. They both agreed that this was their favorite cavern and I think it is the best of the sphere images. I posted this image on www.worldwidepanorama.org as my offering for the theme "Forgotten Places", with the crystal formations representing 340 million year old Earth memories.

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!
