Wreck of SS Maheno
Australia

Taken from on the wreck of the SS Maheno on the eastern shore of Fraser Island off Australia.  Fraser Island is home to the Great Sandy National Park and is a World Heritage Site.  The shipwreck is one of the landmark sites most often visited by those who visit this beautiful island.  You need a 4WD if you want to get around on the island.  Although, some people visit the wreck by flying in a small plane and landing on the beach.

The SS Maheno wrecked here in 1935.  It was an Edwardian-style ship liner that was used by New Zealand as a hospital ship.  Read more at Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Maheno

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.
