Jeremiah Wilson discovered the Chifley Cave in 1880, climbing down by candle light from the Madonna Chamber. In this sphere image the guide is pointing his torch at the old staircase that Wilson built in the 1880s.

The Chifley Cave was the first cave in the world to be lit with electric light, with the first electric lights installed in 1880.

The Jenolan Caves are in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, Australia. It's a easy trip by train and bus from downtown Sydney or you can get there by car in about 3 hours. For details on Jenolan Caves visit www.jenolancaves.org.au

Questa è una vista generale di 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!
