Strewth, how big is that termite mound, hey, and what about the spectacular colours of our parched southern land…!

    Love that red Aussie heart – hope to get back one day before it is too late…

      I’m suspecting it will be here for a long-time, but don’t waste any time getting back, were the ones who run out of time. Take care, Baz

    That fiery orange-red soil and blue sky is really striking. The termite mound is huge! What is the age of a mound like that size?

      Hi Lavinia, I tried to get an estimate, but couldn’t find anything definitive – I’m thinking a very long time 100+ years, but guessing. Great though, isn’t it…Cheers Baz

    That’s awesome. I’m hoping to get into the red interior on an upcoming Oz trip for the first time (although granted it will likely be to the very touristy Uluru region). I can’t wait to see that redness. How common to spot are the thorny devils?

      Thankyou… Red soil asnd blue skies – how good is that. Something you can look forward to. And whilst the Uluru may see a higher concentration of tourists to compared where wee might travel – where you’ll see no-one for 500 kilometres, it is still very spectacular. Thorny Devils are common, and will be out in the warmer months and habitat is much of our arid regions…the trick is spotting them as they are well camouflaged and are smaller than the palm of your hand! Let’s hope you see one in its natural habitat! Cheers, Baz
