Today was our last day here in the Snowy Mountains, so we went for some more walks at Thredbo, and later at Charlotte Pass. We didn’t actually get to the park until 11am, and then headed straight to Thredbo. We went on a bobsled ride – yes, even I went on a bobsled! Not really […]Read more "Kosciuszko National Park"
Today was a heavy driving day – almost entirely through Kosciuszko national park. The section from Jindabyne to Khancoban to Cabramurra was so winding and curvy that I felt nauseous and had to drive myself rather than look out the window and search for places to stop for photos! The trip from Jindabyne to the […]Read more "Jindabyne to Khancoban to Kiandra circuit"

During the week (it’s […]Read more "Namadgi National Park"

We hit the (dirt) road, heading towards Emerald. We pulled over a few times to take some panoramic shots: We stopped off at the […]Read more "On the road in Queensland"
Arrival at Carnarvon Gorge I had booked the Takarakka Bush Resort in advance, because I’d read that they tend to be quite busy and we were staying 5 nights. They put on talks about the Gorge and what to expect, every afternoon at 4.30pm, so we wanted to be around for that. We arrived at […]Read more "Camping Trip – Four days and five nights at Carnarvon Gorge"
