Lily Pond
Australia

This lily pond is in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney. Located on the southern side of the harbour these gardens have many rare and beautiful trees. On my previous visit many of the trees were being destroyed by a large colony of flying foxes (fruit bats). This time the bats have gone and the trees are recovering. Many places in the gardens have excellent views of the Opera House, the CBD and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is a great place to bring a book to read while sitting on a shaded bench with a beautiful outlook.

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.
