Pelicans (In the Outback)

Pelicans (In the Outback)

Pelicans, you’ve got to love this majestic bird!

There are many inland waterholes and billabongs that abound with them in the Australian Outback. I photographed this pelican on the Cooper Creek at Innamincka…

Cordillo Downs (And Innamincka)

Cordillo Downs, Outback Australia This is one of my favourite outback drives, a road that weaves its way down past Cordillo Downs and the Cordillo Downs Woolshed.

A pastoral lease was taken up for Cordillo Downs in 1878 and not too long after this the property was running up to 10,000 sheep. By the early 1900s it had amalgamated with Cadelga and Haddon Downs and was running 85,000 sheep on about 8,000 square kilometres of land.

Today, Cordillo Downs still runs around 7,000 head of cattle in a good season, although when you view the landscape it is hard to imagine.

We’ve set up camp by the Cooper Creek!
