The historic copper mining town Kapunda is located 79 kilometres north of Adelaide in South Australia. Copper found in the area belonged to the purest loads found in the world and the towns rich copper mining history is reflected in many well preserved historic buildings throughout the township.

The most famous resident of Kapunda was undoubtedly Sir Sidney Kidman, a rich entrepeneur who owned cattle stations covering 64 million acres when he died in 1935. Nowadays the town is an important service centre for surrounding farms.

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!
