▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries "Australia. A Continent Adrift" full documentary in which we discover how animals that populated this part of the supercontinent Gondwana have evolved as to what the Australian continent adrift in the ocean. The story of the inhabitants of this Terra Australis can be traced back to the distant days when all the continents of the southern hemisphere were one. The world was then a warmer, and more humid place, in which enormous dinosaurs ruled over a zoology in permanent evolution. The remains of that universal jungle can still be seen in the north east of Australia, and are now home to the descendents of the long extinct dinosaurs. The birds are the most numerous species in this green, suffocatingly humid world. Their ability to fly meant they were not condemned to isolation like the land creatures of Australia, and competition with the species from the rest of the world produced new types of bird, which then came to these Jurassic forests, and stayed forever. In those distant forests, one hundred million years ago, there lived different types of mammals who sought to ensure their survival by using different means of reproduction. The monotremes, the oldest of all, were mammals, but laid eggs; the eutherians gave birth to completely developed young; and the marsupials, somewhere between these two extremes, completed their development outside the mother’s body. The jungles of South America were, like those of Australia, once part of Gondwana. Back then, monotremes, marsupials and eutherians coexisted in the primeval forests. But the last of these three, little by little, gained ground, as their new evolutionary prototypes improved. The new mammals not only had placentas, they were also more intelligent, and they took over the majority of the habitats of the monotremes and the marsupials. But defeat was not quite as absolute as people tend to think. Because, in the South American night, old ghosts from Gondwana still hide. Everything began with a great journey across the Indian Ocean, millions of years ago. This was just the beginning of the great marsupial adventure, a period of enormous changes. On its journey northwards, Australia became increasingly warm, and its jungles became smaller. The climate of the island slowly changed. The plants had to adapt or die. Each change in the climate meant a change in the vegetation, and each one of these was followed by an endless number of adaptations by the animals. And Australia continued moving north on its slow journey across the Indian Ocean. The closer it came to the Tropic of Capricorn, the more temperate the climate became. Where once there had been jungle, vast open plains appeared The pasture took over the land, and new colonists appeared, some of them close relatives of those who still now live hidden in the last remaining jungles of Australia. The trees of the jungle were always a place of refuge and expansion for the marsupials. As foliage became sparser, due to climate warming, they were forced to colonise the plains and grasslands. The koala was able to colonise the eucalyptus forests thanks to an adaptation which would seem impossible – the ability to feed on its leaves. The leaves of the eucalyptus tree are a combination of low-quality food, indigestible material, and active poisons. Any animal that could adapt and make use of these leaves would have absolutely no competitors. And that is precisely what the koala did. The koala is an example of the incredible versatility of adaptation of the marsupial mammals of Australia. The duckbill platypus is one of the three species of monotremes mammals that lay eggs, a shy animal which lives in some rivers in the east of Australia. The other two are echidnas the long-snouted variety in New Guinea, and this one, the short-snouted variety, which can be found throughout Australia. Australia continues on its slow drift northwards, at a speed of six centimetres a year. At present, a narrow strait is all that separates the fauna of the two continents. But what will happen when the animals of Asia and Oceanía come into direct contact? There may well be enormous upheavals in the uncertain future of this continent. It is easy to image that the evolution of its landscapes and animals will undergo far-reaching changes. But, probably, when new, specialised creatures adapt to the unique conditions of these forests or deserts, causing many of the evolutionary prototypes that now dominate Australia to die out, in the farthest depths of the jungle, with their pacific and archaic way of life, there will continue to be echidnas and duckbill platypuses. And, as in Gondwana in the distant past, there will continue to be mammals who lay eggs.

Abandoned Outstation in central Australia, possibly abandoned due to failed water supply. Water is normally sourced from underground reserves and is pumped up to a holding tank by Windmill or Solar powered electric submersible pump. Bores can run dry or block up thus making the area uninhabitable. Also featured on video is a young Monitor lizard known as a Perentie which can grow over 2 Metres in length. Feral Camels are common sight in the Outback and have reached plague proportions.

http://www.wanderlust.co.uk/ExploreAustralia We’ll guide you from Darwin, a city that has been destroyed and rebuilt twice in its short lifetime to the mighty Uluru also known as Ayers Rock, the cultural centre of ancient Australia. Despite its enormous size, the Northern Territory is the most sparsely populated of all Australian states and territories. Only a couple of hundred thousand people live in an area that covers one and a half million square miles. It’s twice the size of France, and six times the size of the UK. Most of the territory’s population live in Darwin, where our journey begins. The most northern city of Australia is an important hub of trade, commerce, defence and culture. It also acts as the country’s launching pad to Asia, and is closer to Bali than to Sydney. The World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park is the largest in Australia, covering twelve and a half thousand square miles nearly half the size of Switzerland. This magnificent land is co-managed between Parks Australia and Aboriginal people, descendants of those who have lived here for more than fifty thousand years. Aborigines here have a deep spiritual connection with the land that dates back to the world’s Creation in their culture. Kakadu is home to a sublime collection of flora and fauna. Around two thousand types of plant, from coastal mangroves to open woodland and billabongs, hold a fascinating selection of birds and mammals. Crocodiles are apex predators that have existed since dinosaurs walked the earth, and are greatly respected by the people who live and work here today. Crocodiles stalk their prey from just below the surface of the water, waiting for the perfect time to strike. But despite dominating the rivers and the coast, they attract tourists from all over the world who come to see these magnificent beasts in the wild. Arnhem Land is the last great Aboriginal reserve, home to around seventeen thousand Aboriginal people living in outstations scattered throughout this overwhelmingly large, remote corner of the Territory. These people live in a blend of European-style Australian life and traditional Aboriginal culture. Arnhem Land provides a wealth of opportunities to explore the oldest continuing civilisation on Earth. Rock art that dates back to sixty thousand years, traditionally made baskets and indigenous paintings are all part of this rich tapestry of indigenous life in the Northern Territory. It’s a similar story in the city of Alice Springs. A vibrant oasis of culture, Alice Springs is the gateway to the outback, Australia’s Red Centre. Standing proudly in stark contrast with the bright, sunburned desert, Alice Springs is a green, tranquil home for over twenty thousand people. It seems a strange place to find a city. Pleasant cafes, busy museums and fashionable bars aren’t the usual images conjured by thinking of outback Central Australia, but the Alice is the bustling centre of a huge range of events, festivals, shows, museums and galleries. But Alice Springs is known as the gateway to the outback for a reason. For tourists and locals alike, Alice Springs is the beginning of the road to some of the most incredible natural wonders in the whole of Australia. Uluru (Ayers Rock) is a magnificent geological formation is, for many, the symbol of Australia itself. Situated in the heart of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is an area of enormous cultural significance for the local indigenous people. Uluru is the largest single monolith in the world. This huge sandstone formation is held in high regard by Aboriginal people not just locally but all across Australia. The shapes in the rock have been the subject of Creation stories in Aboriginal culture known as the Dreamtime for thousands of years. Thrilling stories about animals, bad spirits and early Aboriginal people are still told by elders today. Uluru is a sacred place, the Mecca of Australian Aboriginals. The nearby cultural information centre receives letters from previous visitors people who have taken a stone or a rock from Uluru and then suffered bad fortune in their work or personal lives. These people have then returned the rock to Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park along with a letter of apology, believing that taking the rock in the first place has been the cause of their misfortune. Kata Tjuta, or ‘The Olgas’, is a group of thirty six domed sandstone rocks thought to be around five hundred million years old. The mesmerising shapes and ochre colour have captivated locals and travellers for generations. In the local language, Kata Tjuta means “many heads”. The area is still managed by indigenous people today, with Aboriginal guides and rangers working alongside white Australians to preserve the geological and cultural importance of this remarkable place.

Alice Springs is the heart of Central Australia and is comprised of cavernous gorges, boundless desert landscapes, remote Aboriginal communities and a charming pioneering history. It embodies the hardy outback of the Northern Territory's Red Centre, and is a travel hub for sights and hikes in the region, such as Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (formerly known as the Olgas) and Kings Canyon. Since the start of the tourist boom in the early eighties, the population has substantially grown to about 28,000. Although Surface water is a scarce commodity in the region, there's plenty underground! It is a great town and well worth a visit! Alice Springs is located 1500 km from the nearest major city, being Darwin to the north or Adelaide to the south. As a result, the people that inhabit the town are often quite ingenious when it comes to making things last! Also, due to this distance, you may find that some things can cost more than in the cities, such as fruit and veg, and some clothing. Over all, however, the town isn't too expensive when it comes to the necessary requirements. Something else to remember is that hotels in Alice Springs are rated slightly different to those in European or American countries - as hotels are rated on their facilities rather than the actual rooms. The reason for that is due to the distance that Alice Springs is from anywhere and the difficulties involved in getting building materials. Mind you, the star ratings reflect the quality of the establishment. The Arrernte Aboriginal people have made their home in the Central Australian desert in and around Alice Springs for more than 50,000 years. Arrernte country is rich with mountain ranges, waterholes, and gorges; as a result the Arrernte people set aside 'conservation areas' in which various species are protected. According to the Arrernte traditional stories, in the desert surrounding Alice Springs, the landscape was shaped by caterpillars, wild dogs, travelling boys, sisters, euros (Kangaroo like creature) and other ancestral figures. Almost in the exact centre of the continent, Alice Springs is some 1200 km from the nearest ocean and 1500 km from the nearest major cities, Darwin and Adelaide. Alice Springs is the midpoint of the Adelaide--Darwin Railway. To the south are the imposing McDonnell Ranges, with all transport links to the south using "Heavitree Gap" - a distinctive narrow gap in the range where the railway, highway and Todd River run through without any climb required. Heavitree Gap was named by William Mills, a surveyor of the Overland Telegraph line. He named it in honour of his former School in Devon. The roads around Alice Springs are generally flat and tend to skirt a lot of the hills, some of which are sacred sites to the local Indigenous people. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Exploring? Make sure to go to the Parks And Wild Life NT (Northern Territory) web site to check out the information on the Larapinta Trail. If you want you can travel all the way from Alice Springs along the West MacDonnell Ranges to Mount Sonder. (Mount Zeil -- the highest mountain in the Northern Territory is a bit further West). Trekking and hiking is a heap of fun. The West MacDonnell Ranges are magnificent. Especially as we have had good rain about 10 days before we went on our walk. Although there was no flowing water in any of the main creeks or rivers there was water in rock holes in the gorges. In both Inarlanga Gorge and Waterfall Gorge it was still trickling between a few rock holes. Although we heard and saw birds we didn't see any other wild life. No raptors like eagles, kites or hawks. Great views from the Lookout across Ormiston Pound to Mount Giles and Mount Giles Springs. We drove West from Alice Springs along the Larapinta Drive and then, just after Jay Creek, turned right down Namatjira Drive. We left the car at Glen Helen resort where the Finke River winds through the MacDonnells about 135 kms from Alice Springs. It's about 15 kms South West of Ormiston Gorge. Ormiston Gorge is a magnificent place with a big -- almost permanent -- water hole set in front of huge red cliffs. Dramatic. We got Colin the manager of Glen Helen to drop us off at the Ochre Pits and pick us up from Ormiston Gorge.

There is no reliable surface water along the way, so people contemplating this section must be prepared to carry a heavy pack with a considerable amount of drinking water. Allow 2 days to comfortably complete the walk. Grade: HARD - a rough and narrow track with some steep and/or long climbs and descents (suitable for fit people with previous bushwalking experience).

Cisco, the NSW Department of Primary Industries and BRALCA are partnering to help bridge the digital connectivity gap that exists on farms and supporting supply chains in Australia. We have been prototyping and making “farm tough” a range of hardware and software that improves the collection and transfer of on farm data. For a livestock farm this includes display of information for climate, soil water, pasture, and animal performance. The system could also be adapted for irrigation, broad-acre cropping and horticulture. A particular area of focus has been the use of LoRaWAN - an exciting emerging wireless technology that transports data with low power over large distances. This technology will help solve the data drought in rural Australia, and enable cost effective and reliable delivery of accurate information when and where you need it.

Visit Australia, Australia trip, Australia tourism, Australia tours, Australia vacations, Australia travel, Australia travel guide, Australia holidays, Tourist attractions in Australia, Australia Tourism Guide Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c... Australia is world famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces, its beaches, deserts, "the bush", and "the Outback". Australia is one of the world's most highly urbanised countries; it is well known for the attractions of its large cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Wildlife Australian flora and fauna is unique to the island, the result of having been isolated from the rest of the world for millions of years. Amongst Australian animals are a large group of marsupials (mammals with a pouch) and monotremes (mammals that lay eggs). Just some of the animal icons of Australia are the kangaroo (national symbol) and the koala. A visit to Australia would not be complete without taking the chance to see some of these animals in their natural environment. Wildlife parks and zoos Wildlife parks and zoos are in every capital city, but also check out the animal parks if you are passing through smaller towns, like Mildura or Mogo, or staying on Hamilton Island. See the Warrawong Fauna Sanctuary if you are in South Australia, or visit the koalas with best view in the world, at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. In the wild Kangaroos and wallabies reside in national parks all around the country. You won't see any kangaroos hopping down the street in Central Sydney, but they are common on the outskirts of most urban areas.

Become a part from my next Motorcycle Adventure! Many people suggest that I should have a drone on my trips. It will add this great footage to my videos and will make it much better. Yes guys, I understand this, but it is not that easy when you are one man show like me. I already carry four cameras, batteries, charges, microphones tripods and many more things to be able to record the videos you have seen so far. As I said I am just one man, but I have very interesting solution for that problem and this is what I am going to tell you now. After I edited the last episodes from Bangladesh the idea to have drone in my next trip really stuck in my mind. Australia and New Zealand are great countries and drone footage will help me to show it even better, but… The prices are not cheap, but they are affordable if I keep in mind that it is long term investment. What worried me more than the price are actually few thing: 1st -The size I already checked all possible options: Mavic pro, Mavic Air or just Spark. They are not that big, but when you include the battery, the charges, the remote and all necessary things I will finish with one extra bag like this, which already bigger than my tank bag. 2nd - Possible damage. I will have thousands of km on any type of roads. A lot of dust, shaking, bumping, possible wet and cold conditions. I am not sure that the long term investment will last that long. 3rd – I cannot control it. I have no idea how to control it. Many might say – it is easy, you will learn fast, but I can also crash it very fast. The problem is that I never even played games with this joysticks, I have no idea what button is for what. I am sure I can learn it, but not so fast and not during the trip So what is the solution? I will ride around Australia and New Zealand for at least two months. Exactly the route is not ready yet, but I will visit some of the most interesting places and cities for sure. Everyone who already have a drone a know how to use it will be welcome to come and make a video shooting day with me. Let me give you more details: We can meet each other, make a couple of hours or day ride on the destination you know and make as much as possible videos. When we finish I will take the copy of the footage with me and I will use it for my video series later on. I will also include your details in the video description and also in my website for everyone who want to contact you. If you already have a Youtube channel or any kind of social network I will be happy to share it with my audience. We can make a separate videos for you as well. It will be like double, not actually like triple win situation! I will have nice footage, you will be able to reach more people and all the viewers or subscribers of the channel will be happy as well! I believe that together we can make something really great and reach inspire more people to travel the world! So, if you live in Australia or New Zealand and have a drone, send me an e-mail and I will contact you as soon as possible.
