Namadgi NP - Trojan Wall 1

Trojan Wall, Namadgi National Park. This place offers what must be one of the best views of Orroral Valley. Trojan Wall can be reached by following a clear trail from the Collimation Tower carpark for no more than 1.5km, heading NW. You can drive up the Orroral Ridge Road (dirt road) to the carpark or walk and climb the long way, as I did, from Orroral carpark along the Link Track to reach the Collimation Tower carpark first.

I now realise half the view of the valley is obstructed by that huge boulder in the front. Perhaps a better view can be captured a little further away from that boulder. I'll make a point of returning before the end of summer.

Update: October 2012 - I did return a year later and found a spot with a better view of the valley.

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.
