Tidbinbilla NR - Gibraltar Rocks
Australia

Gibraltar Rocks are huge granite tors located in Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. The view from up there down below, is quite nice.

One way to get to the rocks is to start from Dalsetta within the nature reserve and follow the walking track. I did that for the first time today (17 Dec 2011) - while not dauntingly steep, the track does climb, climb and climb some more, pretty much non-stop all the way from the start until you almost reach the rocks (then there is a steep downslope just before the entrance).

Possibly an easier alternative (as there is less climbing) - as I have done on all my previous visits to these rocks - is to start from Woods Reserve in the Namadgi National Park and follow the various forest management tracks generally in a north-easterly direction, then head west after reaching the track that leads to the rocks.

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.
