Australia's biggest attraction is its natural beauty. The landscape varies from endless sunbaked horizons to dense tropical rainforest to chilly southern beaches. Scattered along the coasts, its cities blend a European enthusiasm for art and food with a laid-back love of sport and the outdoors. Visitors expecting to see an opera in Sydney one night and meet Crocodile Dundee the next will have to re-think their grasp of geography in this huge country. It is this sheer vastness that gives Australia - and its diverse population - much of its character.

Now that I've been to the Tip of Australia, I feel I have to go even further north. If it were possible at the moment I would try to get across to Papua New Guinea. Until recently I figured the Torres Strait Islands were somewhat like Norfolk Island ... Read more >

On Top of Australia!

Sun, 25 Jul 2021 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [62]

I'm on top of the world!!!! A euphoric feeling I had today, like that feeling Jack had as he stood at the front of the Titanic. After reaching Bamaga yesterday I thought about making a B-line for the Tip but I thought I'd rather do it when I'm refreshed ... Read more >

Archer River to Bamaga

Sat, 24 Jul 2021 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [63]

I made it as far as Weipa a couple of days ago and that's where my progress somewhat stalled. There's not a lot to do in Weipa but it's a good provision stop and the beachside campground is really lovely. I should add that I met some really lovely people ... Read more >

Journey to the Cape...Begins

Wed, 21 Jul 2021 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [46]

An extraordinary adventure has begun. The Australian version of Alaska's Dalton Highway or Russia's Kolyma Highway is in my eyes. The journey to Cape York is known as the "Trip to the Tip." It's something of a pilgrimage or rite of passage for many Aussies;... Read more >

Of all aspects of travel, the people I meet are what I appreciate most. A stand-out tourist site or a beautiful beach will always be there but it's the people who often alter the course of your travels, and that happened to me the other day. Outside ... Read more >
