Uninhabitable – in the Australian Outback

Maralinga, Outback Australia

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the ochre red earth touching a deep blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a turquoise blue sea; and the characters you meet in a quiet country pub, where it is nothing flash, but you are enriched by the encounter…

A couple of years ago we decided it was time to “graduate from work” and re-enter “the classroom of life” where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Thanks for joining us in the adventure…!

Cheers, Baz & Janet-Planet

Out and About – In North Queensland…

 

Making my way north towards a hike on Hinchinbrook Island, bit in the meantime, I’ve been Out and About on the bike in Townsville…

Yep, you’re right, wouldn’t be “dead for quids’

Somebody asked me the other day, where is the Australian Outback, Baz…

I find it is a place that is often hard to describe, almost a state of mind, but here is how I picture the Outback, in my mind at least…

And we are on a countdown to our next trip coming up in April, The Flinders Ranges and Birdsville Track!

Just Dreaming (In the Australian Outback)

Outback Australia

A few weeks back I was wandering around in the Outback enjoying the big sky country when I snapped this shot along the old Cobb & Co Coach Route between Broken Hill and White Cliffs.

Taken nearby to the old Rockholes Hotel, a refreshment point for travellers along the dusty route in days long gone but little more than rubble these days, I just laid back in the red dust and closed my eyes.

In an instant I was transported to another time, lost forever!

Strewth, you just wouldn’t be caught dead for quids, hey!
