Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral in Goulburn
Australia

Panorama of Sts Peter and Paul old cathedral in Verner Street, Goulburn, New South Wales. The catholic cathedral built from 1871 to 1890 is a fine example of early colonial architecture. The cathedral was designed by the Italian architect Andrea Stombuco. The use of green porphyrite makes this the only greenstone cathedral in the world. At the time of the photo the cathedral is undergoing an extensive restoration project.

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.
