This Week's English Speaking Country

26th January is Australia Day, which commemorates the first convict ships that brought immigrants to the continent to start the country. A Good Day to be an Australian is a slideshow by The Wall Street Journal showing us what Aussies get up to on that day; National Geographic has a feature on The Land Down Under; Discovery has a video on The Great Barrier Reef; The Guardian newspaper has an interactive map about the flooding there. Stories of the Dreaming tell us aboriginal tales from the continent.
