Stirling Range Third Arrow Central Gully

The Third Arrow is like an oasis for ridge walkers: it has the most reliable source of water - the water barrel collecting drips from the roof of the cave that's hidden in the gully between the central buttress and main peak (though considering increasing number of walkers even that can sometimes dry out). There's also a nice camping spot for couple of tents just below the gully which is very well protected from the wind and sun, making the stay very enjoyable and worthwhile hanging around for a bit longer to visit numerous interesting rock formations in the area - like the Central Gully shown on this panorama.

Of course if you happened to camp near the Exposed Corner at Pyungoorup Traverse, camping here wouldn't make much sense as it would only take you about two hours to get here, but if you were determined to push on on the first day of hike, this is a perfect place to stay overnight.

If you are unlucky enough and the spot below the water barrell is already occupied, there's another place where you can camp: a large cave located on the northern side of north buttress, which can accommodate up to eight people.

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!
