Panorama Roundhouse Fremantle 2010 Mar 20
Australia

The Round House is the oldest remaining building in Western Australia. Built in 1831 originally as a gaol, it was the first permanent building in the colony. It has eight cells and a gaolers quarters which all open up onto a central courtyard.

Being too small to house the influx of convicts in the 1850's, it was used as a police lock-up up until 1900 instead. Later as a house for the Chief Constable and his family.

Today it is open to the public and is a popular stopping point on the Fremantle Heritage Trail.

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.
