#Croydon, it's been absolutely lovely having you back this summer holidays. But, honestly, we're exhausted. Our staff have worked incredibly hard, and they deserve a break. We are therefore going to close at 6.30 on the evening of Sunday 5th September, and remain closed until 11am on Thursday 9th September. We're going to have a nice meal, possibly a couple drinks, play some games, and do a little bit of maintenance. See you soon!
The driest, flattest, and smallest continent, Australia is almost as big as the continental United States, but has a fraction of the inhabitants—six million people in 1925. Beyond the settled areas, three-quarters of the land remain relatively little known until after World War Two. Seen by those in Europe and America as one of the last great wildernesses, despite decades of exploration and incursion, it remained a place that guarded its secrets.
