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.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta, 15 Years Later

Wed, 27 Apr 2022 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [28]

As a day of remembrance, Anzac Day is never a particularly busy day. I was warned that I likely wasn’t going to get anywhere yesterday. Keeping my hopes high, I got on out there with all of my gear, including 10 litres of water. A ham and cheese ... Read more >

Wave Rock

Well, I've done a lot more than just Wave Rock (there is no "the" in the name) over the past couple of days. Part of my quest is to find a geocache in every local government area (LGA) in Australia, and there are many small LGAs in the southwest corner.... Read more >
