Namadgi NP - Mt Tennent Summit
Australia

Mt Tennent, in Namadgi National Park - walking course starting from the Namadgi Visitors Centre and leading to the Mt Tennent summit. This walk is one of the more popular walks in Namadgi since it is closer to Canberra than many of the other walks within the park and offers a great view of the surrounding areas not just from the top but from various spots along the way also.


Mt Tennent summit - elevation 1387m according to GPS. Has a fire tower and a few other things, as well as a great view of Canberra to the north if a bit distant, Booroomba Rocks and Deadmans Hill etc to the west and Bushfold Flats (green field visible in the west) down below.

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.
