Broke, Woodburn & Dongara

During our travels around this big wide country of ours, Australia, I have marveled at the ever changing spectacular landscapes out of the car windscreen. As we have meandered from state to state and town to town I have captured some of these dramatic changes in scenery with my camera through the car windscreen. Hence, the CB radio antenna which appears in most shots!

Here is just a sample of what we have encountered so far through four states, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. I hope you enjoy them.

Three States

Three Different States

The Hills

The Hills

The Mountains

The Flora and Fauna

The Flora and Fauna

Above: Some of the countryside of Western Australia, including lush green grass growing alongside the road on the Coral Coast, WA, a kangaroo hopping across the road in Nambung National Park, WA and the palm fringed road into Carnarvon, WA.

Southern Forests

New South Wales Bridges

New South Wales Bridges

Above: The bridge across the Hunter River in Morpeth, Hunter Valley, bridge across the Camden River at Camden River Haven and the double lane bridge across the Shoalhaven River at Nowra.

The Countryside

The Countryside

Above: Some of the countryside of the Nambung National Park, WA, Second Valley ocean view, SA and getting offroad at Coral Bay, WA.

The Nullarbor Plains

Whoever said that the countryside in Australia is unchanging and boring is completely wrong and the above photos are proof of this. What a magnificent country we live in!

      Heather I am so glad you are enjoying my travelogue of Australia. It has certainly exceeded my expectations and most days a new adventure unfolds before my eyes. You are right we are having a fabulous adventure and I’m not sure how I will ever adapt to returning back home.

    Great pics Kathy, CB aerial and all ;-) … we are doing a short (by comparison!) road trip to Mackay to visit rellies soon, looking forward to getting out on the open road and away from my desk!

      I didn’t think I would enjoy the long distances of travel by car that we are doing, but I have to admit most of the scenery has been interesting. Enjoy your trip to Mackay – I’ve only driven through there once about 30 years ago.

    Your shots are fantastic, Kathy! I am inspired to start taking photos through our windscreen now!!! Keep them coming!

      Yes they turned out better than I thought they would and definitely looked more interesting once I melded them together. The biggest problem is that our windscreen tends to get very dirty and dusty so the photos are a little flawed. But I will definitely endeavor to bring more shots of the changing landscapes on the remainder of our trip.

    Somehow the aerial seems to add character to the photographs. It makes them look real and in the moment. You are a very talented lady Kathy :)

      Aw gee thanks Pinky. I don’t particularly feel that talented but I thought it might be interesting to put the photos together to show the variety of landscapes that we have witnessed on our long spells or driving. Sometimes I took the photos out of pure boredom!
