Kalbarri National Park

Two hours north of Geraldton in Western Australia is the spectacular Kalbarri National Park. Stretching from the coast about 50km inland the park encompasses a pretty amazing range of ecosystems from the inland reach that really made me feel as though I was back in Alice Springs with bush tomatos and low scrub the most noticable species (except for a small native pine which I’ll have to read up on).

A day out in Geraldton

So this weekend I am in Geraldton, Western Australia exploring the town for things of interest while work keeps me here for a while. Luckily there seems to be plenty on this weekend which means that I’ve had a busy day of coffee, washing, viewing a church, the Valley View Airshow, sunset at the beach and putting together a quick video from some canyons I did recently. Some photos to […]

Ellendale Pool

I’ve mentioned this before, but one of the perks of my job is being able to stop in at interesting locations near my work sites. At the moment I am spending a little time based out of Geraldton in Western Australia, and instead of heading straight home from the office today I decided to turn off the main drag at the big brown sign to Ellendale Pool. Not having a […]

Photos from a Long Way From…

As I mentioned in a recent post, I’ve been a long way from anywhere a few times in the last month or so. To get to this particular Long Way From took quite a few hours and a the permission of a number of station owners, so I wouldn’t suggest getting excited about going to a Long Way From. Anyway the drive was exciting! There were lots of gates through […]

Staircase to the Moon – Broome

One of Broome’s many amazing natural features and experiences is the Staircase to the Moon, where the full moon raises over the mudflats of Roebuck Bay at low tide. I was lucky enough to be in town for one of the lowest tides, with a rather large moon and can I just say, these photos just don’t do it justice. This spectacle is amazing. It is spectacular. See it!

Impending Cyclone

So it looks like I am going to be within the sphere of influence of Tropical Cyclone Rusty which is due to hit the coast in the next few days. In Broome the impact has been fairly limited so far, bringing only rain and wind however the gale force winds are expected to begin in the next 24hours and the forecast is for lots of rain. Anyway for the moment […]

Kimberleys Day One

Last week I spent the week in the Kimberleys for work. For those of you who don’t know the Kimberleys are the far north western corner of Australia right up where the crocodiles are. I didn’t see any salt water crocs, but I have seen a few freshwater crocodiles this week. Unfortunately photos are hard to get out of a car travelling at 110km/h so the I don’t have proof. […]
