We’ve finally broken our urban surrounds and back on the road exploring this great country of ours, Australia.
COVID-19 restrictions have affected our travel plans over these past few months as borders close and open. But we count our lucky star that is the only impact we’ve experienced. And hey, to those who have been directly affected by the terrible virus our thoughts go out to you.
Let’s all hope that the vaccines are the saviours we wish for…
Over the next few weeks we are heading north from Sydney, taking a coastal route to Cooktown in far north tropical Queensland – well that is the plan, weather permitting as there is still a cyclone lurking off the Queensland Coast.
Australia’s tropical north teems with wonderful wildlife, butterflies that are an iridescent blue, the majestic palm cockatoo, the nocturnal animals of the rainforest, and of course the fearsome salt water crocodile, to be photographed at a healthy distance!
The recent monsoonal rains have swollen the rivers and creeks and created spectacular waterfalls as the torrential rainfall that has fallen flows to the warm tropical waters of the Coral Sea.
Hopefully we can capture some of the beauty of Australia’s tropical north in our photographs and we look forward to sharing them with you as we head towards Cape York Penninsular.

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
