Blue Chopper at the Lost City
The helicopter lands at the Lost City to fly us back to Cape Crawford.  This shot is from the latest batch of pics showing the current state of the Lost City, which varies throughout the year depending on the amount of rainfall.  More to come.

There's gold in them there roo poos!
 
Kangaroo poo could lead to gold discoveries
A South Australian exploration company says it's planning to use evidence that trees can detect gold beneath the earth's surface as part of its own activities.
[...]
But managing director Chris Drown says it's not just trees that could provide information on where the gold is.

"An interesting one that I have heard of was one using kangaroo poo," he said.

"Kangaroos graze on the native vegetation that passes through their gut and in fact it's been shown to work quite efficiently in studies in Western Australia.

"So it's not just trees, it's also marsupials."

Will the Upside Down Big Mango Finally be Uprighted? #mangogate  
Mangos ripen from the top down and have a distinctive 'hook' on the greener bottom end, as you can see from this image search for "mango".
Why was the Big Mango installed upside down?

Fascinating stuff! 
"The map, which no-one knew existed for about a century, features the first detailed sightings of Tasmania by Abel Tasman's crew aboard the Zeehaen in 1642, local media said.

It is the first time Australia and New Zealand are named by the Dutch and it's the first time Tasmania appears on a map, local media added.

The National Library of Australia acquired the map after it was uncovered in 2010 in a storage facility in Sweden."
 
Forgotten 300 Year Old Map Of Australia To Go On Display
A 17th century map of New Holland will go on display for the first time after being forgotten for a century, local media reported.

The master cartographer for the Dutch East India Company, Joan Blaeu, created the map in 1663. It formed the basis for all other maps of New Holland, which is the historical name for Australia.

Captain James Cook used the large-scale map to complete the mapping of Australia in 1770, local media said.

The map, which no-one knew existed for about a century, features the first detailed sightings of Tasmania by Abel Tasman's crew aboard the Zeehaen in 1642, local media said.

It is the first time Australia and New Zealand are named by the Dutch and it's the first time Tasmania appears on a map, local media added.

The National Library of Australia acquired the map after it was uncovered in 2010 in a storage facility in Sweden.

The map is very fragile. Four conservators are working full-time to stabilise it.

For Preservation Manager Robin Tait it has been a privilege to be part of the team.

"It's been a great thrill actually. You don't see things like this very often," she said.

The ancient map will go on display at the National Library in November. It will be presented as part of the Mapping Our World: Terra Incognita to Australia exhibition.

Curator Martin Woods called the map a remarkable piece of Australian history.

"It's 350 years old, 130 years before Cook mapped the east coast of Australia. This is the first time that most of Australia was brought to the rest of the world," he said.

The exhibition will feature many of the world's greatest maps, including pieces from the the Vatican, the British Library, and the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, local media said.

The Mapping Our World exhibition will open to the public on November 7.

Roo and dingo paintings to stay in Britain
AUSTRALIA has lost out to the British in a tussle to purchase the first non-indigenous paintings of a kangaroo and dingo, made after Captain James Cook's voyage on the Endeavour.

London's National Maritime Museum has secured the 18th century works by George Stubbs following a public fundraising campaign and a STG1.5 million ($A2.55 million) donation from shipping magnate Eyal Ofer.
[...]
The paintings were commissioned by Joseph Banks who accompanied Cook on his 1768 voyage to Australia and made sketches of the then-unknown specimens.

It was from these sketches and the skins of animals that Stubbs made his iconic paintings of a kangaroo and a dingo back in the UK.
