Cape Borda Lighthouse
Australia

The Cape Borda lighthouse is the shortest (10 metres high) and highest (155 metres above sea level) lighthouse in Australia. Located on the remote north-west corner of Kangaroo Island, the lighthouse has been in operation since 1858. Cape Borda lighthouse is the 3rd oldest lighthouse and only square shaped lighthouse in South Australia. The small canon was originally put in place to be fired during fog to signal shiops of danger but since its restoration in 1999 the cannon is fired daily at 1pm. The headland is named after the French mathematician, physicist, naturalist, and sailor Jean-Charles de Borda.

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.
