Back in the outback – via the express drive to Cobar

Finally, Doc and I are back out in the outback. The “Welcome to Cobar” sign at the edge of town even says “Outback NSW”, so it must be true. Unfortunately, the reason we’re here is not the best. My uncle is very sick and has been given not long to live, though I don’t know …

The Sunday lunch project

It’s been far too long since we went to the Cape (July-Sept last year), and too long even since we went to the farm (Christmas). We’re not planning another really big trip until next year (hopefully a 6 month odyssey across the top, down the Canning and back – maybe including another trip to the …

Is it travel photography if you’re at home?

As you can see from my website, I love to travel, and I love to take photos. Combine the two and you have my perfect job – travel photography. If only somebody would pay me to do it I’d be as happy as the proverbial pig. Maybe one of the reasons I don’t get paid …

Diving the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia is one of the natural wonders of the world. The largest coral reef, it is an amazing place to dive and snorkel. Photos do not do it justice, but I tried anyway.

Exploring the Tip – photos of the northernmost point of Australia

There’s a lot to see at the northernmost point of Australia – if you can find it. Tourism on Cape York is not very well developed. That’s both a positive (few people) and a negative (it’s hard to find things). A few signposts wouldn’t go astray! Cape York is rugged country, with thick rainforest and …

4WDing mecca, remoteness and romance. The perfect holiday.

The Old Telegraph Track on Cape York, Queensland, Australia is not only a 4WDing mecca, it is one of the most beautiful and romantic places you can visit. Its remoteness means it’s never too crowded, and the crystal clear creeks and rugged driving make travelling 25km a good day!

Logans Creek the longest crossing on the Old Tele Track

The creek crossings on the Old Tele Track can instill fear in even the most experienced 4wd’ers. With good reason. Palm Creek, at the beginning of the southern end of the track, and Nolans Creek at the end of the  Northern end, bookmark a great 4wd’ing adventure. Both have well deserved reputations. When we did …

Eulo Mud Baths – who needs Rotorua?

Another unexpected find on our journey, from a small, almost unnoticed, note on the map – “mud springs”. That’s all it said, but it was enough to make me curious. Neither of us knew anything about it. In fact, neither of us had ever heard of Eulo, where the springs are, so Doc agreed to …

On the road less travelled

We’ve had what might be one of my favourite days of the trip so far. Yesterday morning we left Winton early to get to the 10am dinosaur stampede tour. And yes – it’s a real dinosaur stampede. At least, the fossil remains of one, and the only site of it’s kind in the world. This …

Degustation sightseeing – a small taste of many beautiful things

Right now, because we have a long way to cover in a fairly short time to get home, we’re doing a lot of travelling, 500km a day or more. Places I’d really like to stay at for longer flash by. We’re moving into camp, pack up and drive, stop for lunch, drive, stop to camp, …
