Namadgi NP - Nursery Swamp in autumn

Namadgi National Park - Nursery Swamp at its... brown best. Wish I'd visited much earlier in the year. On some of my previous visits I recall the swamp being lush green. I'll try another visit next summer.

I always find this area to be a very peaceful one, with the sound of constant breeze in the background. A roo or three can be spotted closer to the swamp.

Update: returned in late summer 2014 and found the swamp was once again full of green.

Esta é uma visão geral de 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!
