The People you Meet Crossing the Nullarbor

After two days driving across the Nullarbor Plain and a night sleeping in the car, we had arrived at the first real sign of civilisation, Norseman. Here we were able to find a campsite and enjoy the comforts that we had been missing since Adelaide. It also gave us the chance to meet and talkContinue reading “The People you Meet Crossing the Nullarbor”

The Endless Emptiness of Crossing the Nullarbor

The Nullarbor Plain is an area of arid desert stretching across South Australia and Western Australia.

I knew very little about the Nullarbor before a friend asked if I wanted toContinue reading “The Endless Emptiness of Crossing the Nullarbor”

From my time there eight years ago I had become familiar with the city and knew that one of the best views was found from the roof of the ANZAC memorial, a 15 minute walk from the construction site that was currentlyContinue reading “Melbourne Then and Now”

Changing Colours of Uluru

As today is Australia Day I thought I would post a group of photographs from my time in the country. I wanted to find something that summarised Australia and would be reconginsed as Australian when people saw it and thought that Uluru was a great option. One of the many things recommended to do whileContinue reading “Changing Colours of Uluru”

These places are marketed as a way to educate and conserve┬ábut how fair is it on the animals. Places like SeaWorld where you can see dolphins, seaContinue reading “Welcome to Australia Zoo”
