Naval Review, Wooloomooloo Bay
Australia is an island continent that is impossible to protect via the sea. Australia is a massive land mass that is probably impossible to defend - full stop. We are comparable in area to the USA but whereas they have a population of over 400 million people, Australia has a population of just over 20 million. We tend to punch above our weight in some areas ... and have pretensions in others ...
On Saturday the CBD was shut down so that the navy could march. Once we escaped the melee, I took Dad down to look at the fleet anchored at Garden Island.
