Scenic Rim region seen from the peak of Mt Barney
360 degree view from the peak of Mt Barney the highest peak in the scenic rim region. The mountains are eroded volcanic remenants, some are steep and rugged especially Mt Barney and Mt Warning. Mt Warning in NSW was the centre of an ancient supervolcano. Australia's great diving range runs a few kilometers to the west, and numerous peaks where the volcanic region intersects Australia's largest mountain range are visible in the north of this photo. The photo was taken just after the winter solstice on an iPhone.

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.
