The Gap
Australia

If you are setting out on an exploration of Sydney's foreshore, The Gap is a great jumping off point. It is located at Watsons Bay and only a 20 minute ferry ride from the city. You can also walk to the nearby South Head where there are fantastic views across the entrance to Sydney Harbour. If you are hungry there is both a takeaway and a full blown Doyles restaurant. These specialise in fish meals and are top quality. There are also excellent beaches and Camp Cove (where Governer Phillip first landed in 1788) is nearby.

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.
