Mallacoota
Fishing is a foreign place to me, but, for those who have 'the knowledge' Mallacoota is a major drawcard. Mallacoota Mallacoota Pelicans and Silver Gulls know all about fishing as well. Or, at least, they know where fishermen clean their fish. Pelicans at M...

Spotted Gum at Nelson Beach
In praise of Spotted Gum Corymbia maculata ( Syn. Eucalyptus maculata). Spotted Gums trees may be the dominant trees in many forests in eastern Australia but not where I come from. So to my fresh eyes they are a stunningly beautiful addition to the already ...

Mimosa Rocks
Bega Cheese Factory was disappointing because we couldn't see any of the actual cheese-making process like we have in several cheese factories in Tasmania but, on the plus side, the museum was interesting. So in the afternoon I was happy to leave the indust...

Mount Kosciuszko
It was a perfect day to climb the highest mountain in Australia. A clear blue sky, a gentle breeze and warm. At Thredbo we bought tickets for the ski lift and it took us gently and effortlessly up above the treeline, up to the beautiful alpine herbfields. T...

Lockhart
We chose to stay in the little town of Lockhart rather than the nearby city of Wagga Wagga. It was a good decision. We had no idea what a delightful town it is. The whole of the main street has a heritage listing and it's no wonder. The buildings are of the...

Sepia Saturday: Business trucks
The theme photo this week features Finnish radio engineers on top of a broadcast van. So what have I got in my collection that might match? I found a few photos of trucks used by several generations of the Phelan family in various businesses over the years....

Tathra wharf
The wharf at Tathra is historic and tourists are drawn to it, especially now that it has been restored and a cafe established in the old wharf shed. After a number of years in the doldrums it has a new lease of life. Parking is in short supply and must be i...

Picnic Point, Wapengo
Each of the tidal inlets along the Sapphire Coast supports an oyster farm industry. I know nothing about the requirements for such an industry but presumably the water quality has to be pretty good. I don't actually eat oysters either. We visited Picnic Poi...

Barry Highway, NSW
From Jindabyne we drove to Willis on the Victorian border on the Barry Way. If we had continued we would have reached Buchan in Gippsland. The road is on the eastern side of the Great Dividing Range and follows the Snowy River on its way from Mt Kosciuszko ...

Broken Creek
We camped beside Broken Creek near Nathalia, in a quiet spot, we thought. Perfect for an overnight stop on our way to the high country. Bourkes Bridge is a delightful spot. The creek has timber debris and some reeds on the banks, the road is still dirt, the...

This week's theme photo for Sepia Saturday shows people with practical and artistic skills employed in a  factory. Well, I've searched my photo collection and failed to find anything similar, so I'm heading off on an tangent. The illustrations are not sepia...
