The Town that Australia Forgot

Mary Kathleen, the abandoned Uranium mining town, which existed for only a brief period between the 1950s and 1980s. All that’s left now are the concrete foundations and a few recognisable remnants of town life. I fell in love with it straight away.

There’s No Place Like Home

It seems appropriate that I’m actually finishing off this blog post on the plane. I managed to get a last look at the red pindan dirt from the air and I said goodbye as we flew over Darwin and out into the sea. I’d be more upset if I hadn’t just found the Tim Tam…

‘Twas the Night Before Chrissy

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and near Hanukkah too, Not a creature was stirring, not even a roo. The bottle-o had been raided and the food prepped with care, And the cookies and milk left for when St. Nick would appear…

Living on the Wild Side

I was pleasantly surprised by Tasmania. I went there with zero expectations, and it exceeded them. I really loved it.

This post is coming slightly out of order because I got carried away with ‘Memory Lane’ for a bit. I’ve had ‘Pyromania’ in the pipeline for a while though, so I thought it was about time that I got round to finishing it. What you are about to read was originally conceived way back when…

A bit further down Memory Lane

Okay, so I lasted three days rather than one week, but fire me, I’m only human. Enjoy part two. I’ve heard it’s even better than part one…

Trip down Memory Lane (4WD only)

Almost five months into my Oz adventures, I’m having to say goodbye to the Kimberley. And my god, it’s hard.
