Tessellated Pavement, Eaglehawk Neck, Port Arthur, Tasmania

Tasmania is an island state situated south of the Australian landmass. If you drive an hour south of Hobart, which is the capital, you may end up at Eaglehawk Neck on the Tasman Peninsula. This is also on the road leading to Port Arthur. At Eaglehawk is a strip of land called the Neck. It’s only 30 meters wide at one point and 400 meters long. This thin piece of land connects the Tasman Peninsula […]

Think of What Nature is Capable of Doing!

This is spectacular! Such colours! It’s almost like it’s opalised. This is an ammonite from Alberta, Canada. Not only Australia has wonderful works of nature. This shell is an ammonite, a marine animal that went extinct at the same time as most dinosaurs, around 65 million years ago. This shell’s spectacular coloration is unusual and is found only in ammonites from Alberta, Canada, such as this one. For many millions […]

Sometimes in a […]

Trip to Tjukayirla Roadhouse

  Now, if you like, come with me on one of my trips to this part of the world. It will only take a minute or two. We rise early in the morning of a wintry June, some years ago, but I don’t remember the exact year right now. The 4-wheel drive is packed and ready to go. The day looks promising with glorious colours of sunshine and a bright […]

Great Central Road

Four Camels on Great Central Road are Better than Ten Camels at the Zoo. Today I’m gong to draw on old memories. This wasn’t going to be a once, in a lifetime trip, but we haven’t been back to the Great Central Road. We have seen new places with similar landscapes, but it was something extra special about this road trip. Those who know me also know that I love […]
