Catherine Hill Bay coal seam
Australia

At Catherine Hill Bay, the Great Northern Coal Seam is exposed at beach level.  The seam is part of the upper section of the late Permian Newcastle Coal Measures.  It is underlain by the Bolton Point Conglomerate (exposed on the nearby rock platform), and overlain by the Teralba Conglomerate, exposed in the cliff here above the coal seam.  The seam was mined until the early 2000s and coal was loaded onto ships via the jetty in this panorama.

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.
