Mcmahons Point Views
Australia

If you were going to live in Sydney and wanted one of the best views in the world, you would choose McMahons Point as your home. It overlooks the harbour, the bridhe and the opera house. In the afternoon the sun moves towards the west and highlights the CBD, opera house and bridge. A ferry gets you over to Circular Quay in just 10 minutes, although there are buses and trains aswell. The bus/train trip across the Sydney harbour bridge is great for even more views.

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.
