A traveller, at the start of his trip, made a decision to travel in a Westerly direction, he made it through several deserts in his 4 wheel drive vehicle and then met the coast. Though Australia is a very large country, the roads and land eventually ran out and he arrived here at Steep Point, the most Westerly point on the mainland of Australia.
The area around steep point is a popular fishing and camping area to those people that are keen enough to tackle the sand dune crossings on the track that makes its way out here.
Here the traveller turns around, the direction he travels in now most certainly has some East in it.

    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!
