The biggest port of Australia was established by British deportees
It was the most unusual load that Admiral Arthur Phillips ever transported. The commander of 11 ships started his journey of 7 months from England to the eastern coast of Australia, having over 700 British convicts for deportation and over 450 marines.
On 18 January 1788 the ships touched the ground described by other navigators as good for landing. At this point the exhausted prisoners – at least those who survived the voyage – could finally leave the ships.

Farmers, cattle keepers and gold diggers, these were the founders of the city, the second biggest of Australia and the eternal rival of Sydney. Judging by their history, the two sisters should have been sisters, Melbourne being the younger, although it looks older. For a long time, the two cities fought for the honor to become the capital of Australia. Despite the whole fight, Canberra succeeded achieving the capital in 1913.

One of the best things about large cities is that they are not uniform, and behind every street corner you might as well find something new, something that you haven’t encountered before. And large cities tend to have little pockets of culture where people have retained their own sense of style, and sometimes language and culture.
Ethnic enclaves might have started out as something else, but today they tend to be oases of color and uniqueness inside cities. Plus, they are the go-to place if you are in search of ‘authentic’ cuisine and products, as well as interesting sights. Here are 5 great ethnic neighborhoods from around the world, for travelers who want to break the monotony. …

Go on the most exciting dive of your life at one of the top 5 scuba diving destinations in the world. …
