Canberra - Australian War Memorial at sunset
Australia

The Australian War Memorial, as viewed from the front at sunset.

Directly behind the Memorial is Mt Ainslie which, unfortunately from this position is completely hidden. Turning around 180 degrees, you will see the Parade Ground and ANZAC Parade stretching south west. If you zoom in on the pano and squint hard you will see, albeit blurry, this land axis extending over Lake Burley Griffin, Old Parliament House then finally onto Parliament House, all in a straight line. For those unfamiliar with Canberra, this is all by design. For more detail see Urban Structure section here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canberra

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.
