Australia Travel Guide to Enjoy the Australia Tour

Australia is a land of contrasts – topographical, cultural, physical, meterological and visual. About 40,000 years ago, the Aborigines were the first to settle. They lived as hunters and gatherers for this entire time, living with a close link to nature, although backburning and other poor agricultural techniques have since been realised to have caused significant deforestation, salinification of the soil and elimination of much of the natural diversity of the landscape. Such a poor ability to interact with nature, despite it being so important, helps explain why much of Australia is now unsuitable for sustaining life. Interestingly, this provides one of the few examples of where the native population damaged the land more than later waves of settlers...

Tied ODI Matches – West Indies V Australia at Guyana, April 1999

The West Indies and Australia were involved in the first-ever tied ODI in Australia. Fifteen years later, the two teams met at Bourda, Guyana, in the fifth match of a seven-match ODI series. The series was level at 2-2 going into this match; the stakes were high, as the winner would take the lead going into the last two games.
