A beautiful summer evening and I'm walking back home with my dogs after taking them for a long meander through the tracks and trees of the disused Bushmead Rifle Range at Helena Valley in Western Australia. I follow the fence down from neighbouring Gooseberry Hill National Park as the sun is touching the horizon in front of me.
Ravenswood in Northern Queensland is a quaint little gold mining "ghost town" (says the tourism blarb - but really it just means more of it has disappeared than is still standing). Anyway, it has some fascinating buildings and funny little shops left along with a wealth of interesting history and abandoned mining heritage.
Grim Xmas weather on the Otago Peninsula. Third in my New Zealand Landscape series. Xmas Eve, 2004 found me on an excursion to the furthest tip of the Otago Peninsula out of Dunedin on the south coast of New Zealand's south island.
