Eagleview Shack
Australia

The shack under construction. At the end of the ridge where the shack is situated, an expansive view of largely unspoilt land at the Western end of Kangaroo Island includes Cape Torrens Conservation Park to the North West. The conservation zone extends to the North coast where some of the highest coastal cliffs in South Australia exist, rising to over 260m above sea level. At night the sweeping light from the Cape Borda Lighthouse can be seen, 21 km to the West. Also to the West across the pasture in "Back Valley" is the De Mole River region.

Mer om 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.
