ACT - Molonglo Gorge

A scenic view of Molonglo River, as seen on the way to Blue Tiles picnic area by following a track that originates at the Molonglo Gorge Recreation Area car park. This spot is perhaps (in my view anyway) the most scenic scenery along this track. You have to get off the track and go down the slope for maybe 20m or so (?) to reach this spot. If you are uncomfortable with heights (as I am) though this isn't the place to hang around for long. There were several humongous fish (so big they were easily visible even from this height) swimming in the body of water directly below but unfortunately they are not in the photo.

The track that links the Molonglo Gorge Recreation Area to Blue Tiles picnic area, for some reason, had made me visualise in my head that it would be an easy stroll for a family out for a picnic at Blue Tiles. But I found this isn't quite so - while the track is well maintained and is no doubt suitable for an overall fit family to get to the picnic area, it is narrow and in some sections the track is rather rocky and climbs enough that one may want to be cautious about taking little kiddies or people not very steady on their feet. The track does make for a good bushwalk though and you can return from Blue Tiles via Kowen Forest to the north.

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.
