Noosa River anchorage, Queensland

Anchored in the Noosa River is an ideal place for the shallow draft cruising catamaran. Protected waters of the river, services, 100+ coffee shops, restaurants, nearby surf beach and all manner of facilities. As it is shallow and relatively narrow there is an absence of large power boats and their disturbing power waves - and that could be the best feature of all.

The waterway is otherwise hole to a range of bird life and fish as the important eco system extends to Lake Cootharaba and beyond, lined with mangrove and native bush.

On any given day there is also fisherman, stand up paddlers, pontoon boats and other rental craft that hardly disturb.

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!
