Namadgi National Park - The Forest God

There is a large face-like growth in a tree on Stockyard Spur walking track. To me it looks like a smiling face of an ancient being, and I have thus named it the Forest God. You can pay your respects to the Forest God after doing the steep climb up the walking track from Corin Dam and walking past the Heli Pad. Don’t stop for too long though, this area is full of March flies (in late January when this photo was taken) – they can sting and be a huge annoyance with their extraordinary persistence to follow you, unfortunately pretty much all the way until you reach Mt Franklin Road.

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!
