Well, as I write this it is Australia Day here (January 26th), a controversial day these days. It’s our ‘national’ day, and the date was chosen as it’s the day that white man arrived on the east coast of Australia. That’s where the controversy lies really, it marks the day everything changed for the indigenous peoples of this country. Over 360 languages native to Australia then, now something like 64. And today a fierce “debate” rages about changing the date for this reason. Personally I think the date should be changed. It’s not actually the date that Europeans touched down on Australian soil – the Dutch landed on the west coast of Australia a long time before the British on the east. But I don’t really like to use this blog to announce my political views, so I won’t say anymore on the subject.
Anyways, this post is getting posted on the day AFTER Australia Day – a public holiday this year as Australia Day falls on a Sunday. And I was thinking about what I could post. I’ve decided to go with a few of my posts about Australia. So here we are –

The biggest cities across this wide land are generally the state and territory capitals. So here’s a little look at them!
