Talyuberlup 3rd Pillar Stirling Range
Sometimes getting lost is not a bad thing. Like some gentleman named Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”. So I did: I diverged from the main trail leading to the peak and followed faint path squeezing through the thick bush (more scratches again). Well, it paid off: I arrived at the bottom of the Talyuberlup's pillars - magnificent rock formations created over millions of years and now proudly rising from the bush. This nature's masterpiece seems to contradict the laws of physics, with its layers of rock suspended over the void - it's hard to believe that it's still standing today.

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!
