Day 28 - Stormy history of European settlement

Day 28 - Stormy history of European settlement
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

AUSTRALIA Day falls on this week, commemorating the arrival of the first fleet into Sydney in 1788, carrying mostly criminals sent half way around the world to this hostile environment to serve out their sentences. It is still celebrated around Australia despite the underlying controversy it brought, with the sudden invasion of the world's oldest civilisation who had happily lived here for some 65,000 years. Controversies aside, Australia Day is celebrated as our national day where we celebrate everything Australian, and for many long-term immigrants, the all important citizenship ceremony to seal their permanence as Australians in our largely migrant society.

Today's hike starts at the mouth of the Tingalpa Creek, following the coast around Waterloo Bay to Wellington Point. From there it heads through Geoff Skinner Reserve to Cleveland Marina.
