Early European exploration of inland Australia was sporadic. More focus was on the more accessible and fertile coastal areas. The first party to successfully cross the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney was led by Gregory Blaxland in 1813, 25 years after the colony was established. In 1865 the surveyor George Goyder, using changes in vegetation patterns, mapped a line in South Australia , north of which he considered rainfall to be too unreliable to support agriculture. Exploration of the Outback continued in the 1950s when Len Beadell explored, surveyed and built many roads in support of the

Well, it's Harry and Meghan (so don't mention armed guards and the fawning city bigwigs). Duke and Duchess of Sussex were treated like royal visitors on trip to the city. Couple enjoyed a private sightseeing visit hosted by NY's mayor and governor. Witnesses said the couple, who appear to have left children Archie and Lilibet in California for the three-day trip, sipped cocktails as their 'hired muscle' took over tables around them, trying to blend in. Fellow drinkers said Harry and Meghan had martinis before leaving via the back door around three hours later and apparently heading off for dinner.

The outback town of Wudinna in regional South Australia has put out red and blue colours in support of homegrown football player Harry Petty, who is playing for the Melbourne Demons in Saturday's AFL grand final.

A large group of the Petty family have travelled to Western Australia for the game, with no current border closures between the two states.

Jon Bernthal urges caution over The Many Saints of Newark

  Jon Bernthal urges caution over The Many Saints of Newark Jon Bernthal has warned audiences that 'The Many Saints of Newark' prequel is very different from 'The Sopranos'.The 44-year-old actor plays Giovanni 'Johnny Boy' Soprano, the father of Tony, in the upcoming flick that serves as the prequel to the acclaimed HBO series but urged fans not to simply expect a movie that is similar to the TV series.

The town is named after Weedna Hill which was the site of the first land claim in the area. It was made in 1861 by Robert George Standley. It is said that 'weedna' later was corrupted to Wudinna which may be an Aboriginal word meaning 'the granite hill'. The Australian Farmer Sculpture This impressive granite sculpture was designed and sculpted by Marijan Bekic as a symbolic representation of all Australian farmers. It was crafted from two pieces of local pink granite over a 17 year period.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were last night spotted out partying with Misha Noonoo and Mikey Heiss in New York as they kickstarted their tour of the city, exclusive pictures for MailOnline show. The Duchess has continued to support her friend by wearing Misha Nonoo styles over the years and donned the famous 'Boyfriend shirt' for her first appearance alongside Prince Harry , and also wore another of Misha's designs for her final day of meetings in the UK before stepping back from royal duties.

The player's uncle, Zane Petty, said it has been incredible seeing his nephew grow from strength to strength in a short period of time.

"It's just an unbelievable feeling seeing someone growing up over your back fence and there they are playing at the highest level, I don't know how to explain it — it's unreal," Mr Petty said.

Unlikely outback colours

Zane Petty said Wudinna was an unlikely place to wave the red and blue flag.

"I followed Port Adelaide before, like all Eyre Peninsula boys do," he laughed.

"I haven't always been a Melbourne fan until Harry got drafted; then I instantly became one."

He said it has been a strange experience to be physically separated from Harry during the season.

"We can speak to him from a distance at games; we haven't shaken his hand or given him a hug for a long time, so it's definitely overdue."

Wudinna is a town in South Australia . The area was first settled by Europeans in 1861 when Robert George Standley lodged a claim for 10 square miles (26 km2) of land surrounding Weedna Hill ('weedna' later became changed to Wudinna which may be an Aboriginal word meaning 'the granite

As she held an Australian flag and stood on the road facing toward a group of approaching police, one officer shoved the woman, sending her tumbling to the ground. Another officer then pepper-sprayed the woman as she laid motionless and unable to protect herself. Seconds after the attack – with the offending officers having already moved on – another group of police officers came to the woman’s aid and attempted to help her up. Several other incidents of violence between police and protesters broke out during the protest in Melbourne on Saturday and 235 people were reportedly arrested.

Sister's influence

Zane Petty said Harry's sister, Adelaide Thunderbirds captain Hannah Petty, provided motivation to her brother to get into professional sport.

"She set him up — if you work hard and believe in it and want to do it — you'll do it," Mr Petty said.

Hannah Petty said she is excited to see her brother play in the grand final.

"I think it will all sink in when we see him out on the oval in the Dees' colours," Ms Petty said.

"I think Wudinna will be looking forward to flicking the telly on, and watching the game.

"It wasn't just mum and dad that got us to this point, the whole family and town have helped us along our journey. We're super grateful to have a support network back home that are proud no matter what we put out there."

Harry Petty said he was ready for the grand final.

"It's always a dream for myself as a youngster, always dreamt of running out there in front of 100, 000 at the MCG, obviously not at the G this year — but very excited," Mr Petty said.
