The historic Customs House building at Circular Quay has reopened recently and it now houses the main branch of the City Library -- and a spectacular walk-over model of the CBD -- panorama.

The most well known attractions of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area are the wild dolphins of Monkey Mia.  A few dolphins (all female -- the males get a bit feisty) are fed ... and come in most days. Quite a few others come in too and just hang about -- at least they did the days I was there. Panorama  There is a webcam of the beach here.

A picture named steeppointicon.jpg









Here is another panorama from my trip to Shark Bay, Western Australia last month. It shows the view from Steep Point  ...  the westermost point on the Australian mainland. While we were standing here we saw a large loggerhead turtle in the surf below. Dirk Hartog Island is visible in the distance ... a panorama from the cliffs on Dirk Hartog. Here is another panorama from the tip of Peron peninsula. And another panorama from the Steep Point area -- of an amazing section of the cliffs with lots of acoustic blowholes -- large and small -- which make  loud organ-noises as the waves come in and out below and force air through them. Here is another panorama - of the vermin-proof fence that runs right across Peron peninsula --- part of Project Eden. A panorama from the very top of Dirk Hartog Island ... I think this is my favorite location that I visited ... very remote feeling. A recent news item about how the island will be made into a National Park.

A picture named tamalaicon.jpg







Last month I spent some weeks in Western Australia photographing in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area -- a very beautiful place -- about halfway up the coast on the map. A lot of the country is limestone, like here, and narrow peninsulas like this one are very characteristic of the location. The marker you can see is a memorial to a drowned fisherman ... panorama
