Happy Australia Day

January 26th may be just another day to folks here in the US and elsewhere, but in Australia, it's their anniversary - a celebration of the arrival of the "first fleet" into Sydney harbour.

There are several gondola operations "Down Under".
The photo above is from a post on the operation in Adelaide.

Locations like Noosa, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne either have or have had gondolas plying their waters in recent years.

There are a number of unique gondola designs in Australia; one of my favorites resides in Perth.

So to all of my friends in "Oz", I wish you a "Happy Australia Day!"
