A Carpet of Wildflowers, in the Australian Outback

The Australian Outback is a dry and parched land, but add water and it puts on a brilliant display of colour…

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the red earth touching a blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a warm turquoise blue sea…

A few years ago we graduated from work and re-entered the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Cheers, Baz & Janet

Sunset, through the prism of the dingo fence…

A spectacular sunset in Outback Australia captured from Stony Hill on Pine View Station.

Pine View Station, located in the Strzelecki Desert approximately 200 kilometres north of Broken Hill, is a sheep station that borders the dingo fence in far-western New South Wales.

Fortunately the property has had some rain in the past couple of months, two-inches, and it is the first rain they have seen in four years…

The Corner Country, Outback Australia…

This coming week we are heading out to tour this wonderful part of Australia, although the Corona Virus restrictions will limit our travel to New South Wales only…

Our plan is to meander through Western New South Wales, and then north along the border between New South Wales and South Australia.

There is so much history in the region to explore and with recent rains we expect the country will be in great shape.

Hopefully we’ll get some warmer weather…!

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…

In 2017 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…!

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’

The Australian Outback

 

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!
