Percy Hilton
Australia

This is the location of the well-known "Percy Hilton" a make-shift A-frame structure that contains paraphernalia and memorabilia from cruising sailboats, who have visited this place, dating over 50 years.   Mostly there are signs with names of boats posted all over the structure.   The location is on Middle Percy Island whose ownership has an interesting history.  The island has a beautiful beach, a nearby lagoon for safe harbour in bad weather, a garden, and goats.

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.
