The wonderfully derelict wall of windows at Amcor Paper Mills taunted us. I’d love to have the chance to photograph inside before it’s another casualty of the apartment boom – I wonder who to write to…?

how not to drive 17 April 2014

First time I’ve actually been there when someone has done something totally stupid!

Silly woman  drove onto the shared bike/pedestrian platform at the tram stop outside Melbourne’s State Library, I guess she missed the do not enter sign? Noticing the large bollard in her way she decided taking advantage of the wider tram tracks area would work better than reversing. A pity the platform is elevated!

Amazingly, some men managed to lift it high enough so she could reverse back onto the platform, and received a hearty round of applause for their efforts. 

A sad day for the reputation of women drivers!

Thanks to Sarah M for the title of this post 🙂

is this home…?

Turns out I did get on the right plane back to Melbourne and this actually is the CBD. Our big city felt very small.

The real Mereenie Loop Road…

When I was planning my Central Australia trip it was difficult to find useful information about the state of the Mereenie Loop Road. Videos I found made it out to be a difficult, dangerous and sometimes very wet adventure. In contrast, I found it to be more like a well made, unpaved highway. Perhaps I got lucky 🙂

For sure, though, you’ll ruin the shockers of a street car – 4WD definitely recommended!

Well worth it for the fantastic scenery, the emptiness and for avoiding most of a day’s drive back to Alice Springs from King’s Canyon.

Australis glorianis…

Great to see such a large family of kangaroos (10 at least), including a joey in a pouch. The old stately koala climbed a fence post then transferred to a low hanging branch, pretty cool. He (she??) was surprisingly sprightly with jumping from branch to branch when required, looked a bit like a furry Yoda :-).

Purchase prints, stationery, pillows, bags, phone covers & even pencil skirts
