Namadgi National Park - Gudgenby-in-a-Box
Australia

A new shelter was erected in 2013 near the Namadgi Visitors Centre. The shelter is partly made of salvaged materials from Gudgenby Hut which had been built in the 1800s. More info about it can be found here.

While it's truly nice to see parts of a centuries-old hut given a second lease of life, I actually thought the shelter - as it was being built before its final form became apparent - was for housing some toilet and shower blocks! At the time I didn't think that was such a daft idea, as lots of people might want a quick toilet stop and even a shower before heading home after having returned from going up Mt Tennent on a stinkin' hot summer's day. But how wrong I was!

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.
