Goulburn Courthouse, Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia Featured 27 Dec 2008 Print

Goulburn Courthouse, Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia

Since Goulburn was the largest town in the district, this court house of Italianate style built in 1881 was both local and district courts as well as supreme court. Designed by respected Governmnet Architect James Barnet, the court house opened in 1887 by the Chief Justice, Sir Frederick Darley and today stands grandly over the Montague Streetscape. The large copper roof dome was designed by the London trained architect, Rumsey, and the carving on the large sandstone gateposts at the entrance to the grounds was the work of David Baldwin of Sydney. It is one of the most spectacular court houses in New South Wales

The Lindblad Expedition ship National Geographic Explorer transits Lemaire Channel in late evening light on the west side of the Antarctic peninsula in Antarctica. Lemaire Channel is a strait off Antarctica, located between the mainland's Antarctic Peninsula and Booth Island. It is one of the top tourist destinations in Antarctica; steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage, which is 11 km long and just 1,600 meters wide at its narrowest point. It was first seen by the German expedition of 1873-74, but not traversed until December 1898, when the Belgica of the de Gerlache expedition passed through. De Gerlache named it for Charles Lemaire, a Belgian explorer of the Congo. The channel has since become a standard part of the itinerary for cruising in Antarctica; not only is it scenic, but the protected waters are usually as still as a lake, a rare occurrence in the storm-wracked southern seas, and the north-south traverse delivers vessels close to Pleneau and Petermann Islands for landings. The principal difficulty is that icebergs may fill the channel, especially in early season, obliging a ship to backtrack and go around the outside of Booth Island in order to reach both Pleneau and Petermann Islands
