In 2001 I rode the Gibb River Road on a mountain bike.
 
My favourite Australian attraction can be found at http://www.maldoncastlemaine.com.au/activties/natural-attractions/the-diggings/ which is Central Victoria, Australia region.

The region is less than 90 minutes North West of Melbourne and conveniently accessed by road and rail.  Stunning villages and towns are located close by, making the region an ideal base from which to explore Central Victoria, Australia.
The region has forged a strong reputation in the arts. The gold rush days set the pace and inspired a wave of refined artistic pursuits.... instrument makers, musicians, craftspeople and artists have shaped the area's creative identity. In the 1850's forty thousand gold diggers teamed up the road from Melbourne to Castlemaine to claim their share from what they called the 'bank till free to all', the richest shallow alluvial goldfield in the world.
Today, towns like Castlemaine, Chewton and Maldon tell part of the story of the great gold rush with their streets lined with buildings grand and humble. But the surrounding bush harbours its own tales of a golden past: crumbling stone walls of huts and pubs, and the gold mines and gullies that yielded up fortunes.
 
My cd player broke half way across the Nullabor! So was singing to myself on the longest straight road in the country for 2 hours :) Such a massive country- beautiful! 

Was happy to arrive in Perth where I could chill out at the beach and pick up a radio station.
 
Just got home from Oz.
I travelled from Perth to Darwin in a campervan.

It was amazing.
As soon as i can i'll share some of my pics.

G'Day all!
