Seeing Australia's landscape is a spiritual experience—cultures dating back 40,000 years have called its terrain home.

It would be hard to find a bad angle of the country and, in a video on YouTube, Kartikeya Sharma has found some of the best.

The intro and background music are more "feature film" than anything—hey, I'd spend money on a movie called “The Ancients”—but make sure and stick around for the ethereal scenes of the night sky later on in the video.

The entire compilation is five minutes chronicling one breathtaking Australian scene after another. It's no wonder so many amazing cinematic hits were filmed here (Star Wars, Where the Wild Things Are, Australia).
