select from my separate journeys in australia
Australia is a truly iconic destination; its buildings, wildlife and even shape are known around the world. It's a land of kangaroos and koalas, Aborigines and the dusty red outback, surfer dudes and addictive television soap operas. Away from these predicable images of Oz, however, lies a country as complex as it is vast.
northern territory: uluru
After living in Australia for over three years now, I'll finally get to see the majesty of Uluru (formerly Ayer's Rock) in Australia's evocative dusty red centre. Coming in November 2019.
australian capital territory: canberra
This mini road trip to Australian Capital Territory was my fourth Aussie state. A mere 300km south west of Sydney lies Canberra, this sunburnt country's modernist bush capital and national meeting place.
Starting from the capital Hobart, this was a road trip along Tasmania's famous Great Eastern Drive; a drive punctuated by wilderness, waterfalls, rainforests, mountainscapes and pure white beaches.
south east australia
This was a road adventure along Australia's south east coast from Sydney to Melbourne, driving along the famous Princes Highway stopping at Narooma, Mallacoota and the awesome Blue Mountains.
western australia: perth & rottnest
This was a visit to Perth, the state capital of WA and one of the most isolated cities on the planet and a golden opportunity to visit the magical land of the Quokkas on Rottnest Island.
I have called the New South Wales state capital home for a year; it's an opportunity to chronicle a city beyond its famous landmarks. Welcome to a Sydney seen through the eyes of a British immigrant: me.
coastal new south wales
This was a 1000km road trip along coastal New South Wales from Minnamurra in the south to Port Macquarie in the Mid-North. It was a journey of sand dunes, Jurassic rainforests & paradisal beaches.
