Australia – True Colours

I love New Zealand and this is where my heart is, but you just can’t beat the colourful landscapes of Australia (not to mention the huge variety of colourful birds). I’m totally in LOVE with the colours of Australia!

Some time ago I found an amazing blog by a couple of Australian adventurers and I get my colour fix by following them and being continually WOW-ed by their photographs.

With their permission I’m privileged to share with you a few photos that I’ve selected from their blog XPLORE – “Out and About having fun” in Australia, courtesy of Baz – The Landy and Janet-Planet.

These are beautiful images. To do them justice I encourage you to click on the image to enjoy the large-size view.

With the first four images you can access a much larger-size version than provided here if you follow the link to the original blog-post.

Nightfall, in the Australian Outback

One of Australia’s favourite birds, the Kookaburra, nature’s very own alarm clock “laughing” the day away…

I managed to photograph this beautiful pair as they sat on a rock looking over the ocean along Australia’s rugged southern coastline…

      1. Probably not, but when we found this place we just sold most everything up north, packed the gear, and came down.

        We were like a clown car… open the doors and everything shot out, Ellen, me, and the dog 😂. Lived in a camp ground while getting a new set up. At my age !!!!

    1. Both countries are definitely worth visiting (many times in fact – there’s so much to explore and Australia in particular is VAST). Australia and NZ are very different so you’re wise to put both on your list!
