The small town of Wirrabara is located 235 kilometres north of Adelaide on the Main North Road in South Australia. Proclaimed in 1874 the area attracted pastoralist and timber cutters to supply wood to mines. Wirrabara prides itself of having the only independently run libary in South Australia, the Wirrabara Memorial Library shown in this panorama.

The area offers scenic self drive tours, access to Heysen and Mawson walking trails, magnificent views to Mount Remarkable, camping in Wirrabara Forest, a produce market on the third Sunday each month, wine tasting, and cycling tracks.

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.
