When a continent is cut adrift for millions of years it becomes a world unto itself, that world is called Australia. It’s a place of bizarre beauty, Earth’s definitive reality and Mother Nature’s test kitchen.

Using Google Earth to view Australia you get the whole picture, how the pieces fit together and how the land made the life. It’s a new perspective of Australia.
