The road north



Desert , stones and dust begin to take over. We are travelling on dirt road now.

  1. Wow, that second photograph is incredible. I love the dust getting kicked up in the distance.

  2. Yes, I am with Megan - very atmospheric
    That's what the European think is Australia - long dirt roads and a van somewhere in the distance, kicking up the dust.

  3. And yet most people live in parts of Australia that look nothing like this and most of the cars never leave sealed road. That is not to say there are not thousands of miles of road like this, just the most of us don't live anywhere near them.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
