Sovereign Hill and Stockholm in 3D

A couple of new 3D areas for you to check out today.
The first is Sovereign Hill, an open-air museum in Australia that showcases the gold found there in the mid-1800′s. They used over 2,000 images to help recreate more than 120 buildings in the site, and also included a variety of trees to help make it more realistic. You can fly there using this KML or see the image below:
