I am looking for famous landmarks in Australia.

external image sydney.jpgThe Sydney Harbour Bridge: Weighing 52800 tonnes, with an arch span of 503m the bridge was opened in 1932. It is one of the longest one-bow bridges in the world with a length of 1 150m. The bridge is just 66 cm shorter than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Over 200 000 cars cross the bridge per day, paying a toll of $2 each. Approx 80,000 litres of paint are required for each coat, enough to cover an area equivalent to 60 soccer fields. Paul Hogan (from the movie Crocodile Dundee) used to work on the Sydney Harbour Bridge as a painter.

Ayers Rock (Ulluru) Uluru: Located in Ulura-Kata Tjuta National Park 450kms south west of Alice Springs, it is the world’s largest monolith (single stone) and an Aboriginal sacred site. Aboriginal rock art can be seen at the base of The Rock. Known as Ayers rock before being returned to its traditional owners, the rock is made of grey/red arkose 347.3m tall & 8.85km in circumference. It is in the Northern Territory, almost at the centre of the country & is approx 2000km from most of the capital cities.
I got all this information from http://www.gigglepotz.com/csydney.htm

external image fischer1.jpg There are hundreds of important and iconic landmarks within Australia – would that we had occasion to visit them all in one lifetime. I’m certainly doing my best to set eyes on as many as is reasonable and hopefully further the cause of domestic travel and tourism along the way, but sometimes it’s how you get to a place that makes all the difference. And there’s only one way to get to Wilpena Pound, one of South Australia’s most remarkable geological marvels: through the entree of the mighty Pichi Richi Pass, just east of Port Augusta.

On a cool mid-May morning we headed inland north from Ravensthorpe, a small town 200 kilometres west of Esperance, on the Hassell Highway. Cars participating in the 25th anniversary of the London to Sydney Rally had passed through the previous day and we had been fortunate to see many of the 'vintage' racers.

We set up camp 100 kilometres short of our destination at Lake Grace, due to the availability of auto L.P.G., although the hamlet of Hyden is nearer to Wave Rock

The birth of the butterflies

Long ago in the Dreamtime when the world was very young ,all the birds and animals spoke the language .All lived forever -no one ever died so non of the creatures knew about death .

One morning a young cockatoo was playing high up in a tree swimming ona branch when he slipped and fell to the ground landing on his head very hard . The other animals clapped but the cockatoo did not move .They tried to wake him but he just lay there .A wise old wombat looked at the young bird and to the others that he had brockrn his neck .The animals
