Uluru aka Ayers Rock in Australia
Australia

Panorama of Uluru aka Ayers Rock in the Northern Territory, Australia. Despite its commercialisation the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park remains a must see destination on many people's bucket list. While air travel provides a convenience alternative, only the long drive through the vast flat plains covered in red sand and small shrubs offers the feeling of excitement when Uluru appears on the horizon. The unbelievable red colour of the sand and the location in the heart of Australia give this region the name Red Centre

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.
