Australia & Oceania

Greetings from Australia postcard Greetings from Oceana postcard

 

Australia, a penal colony from 1788 to 1868, is now a destination for many travelers who want to experience the amazing scenery of the outback, like Ayres Rock which appears to change colors throughout the day, or for the culture of cities like Sydney. Australia, New Zealand, and the Islands of Oceana have come into their own in recent years by becoming known for not only beautiful natural scenery but for a vibrant social scene as well. Many people are also drawn to these places to learn and understand more about Australian Aboriginal, Maori, Papua New Guinean and countless other indigenous cultures. This part of the globe has been seen as a tropical paradise by travelers like Captain Cook ever since western audiences became aware of their existence but now they are seen as so much more than pretty beaches and clear ocean water.
