Around Australia


As we travel around Australia, we take our cameras and sometimes have enough interesting photos to make it worthwhile to put together a page of them.

On 26 January 2011 (Australia Day), we took a voyage around Sydney Harbour on the Lady Hopetoun, a steamer built in 1902 as the Official Vessel of the Sydney Harbour Trust. She now operates as part of the Sydney Heritage Fleet. It was very enjoyable and, of course, we have some photos.

In May 2012, we drove up to Leura in the Blue mountains and visited Everglades, an art deco house built in the 1930s that is visited most for its garden.

Early in July 2013, we spent several days in Melbourne, doing tourist things. And early in December we spent two days in the lower Hunter Valley.

In December 2014, we celebrated our wedding anniversary by travelling to Mollymook and having an excellent meal at Rick Stein's restaurant.

In January 2015, we had a visit from our middle son, now living in America, with his wife and 4-yar-old son. We took the opportunity to do some tourist things.

For Nick's 70th birthday, his sons and daughters-in-law clubbed together to buy tickets on an excursion by steam train to Wollongong.

In January 2016, we went to Canberra and Rutherglen, on a short tour looking at art and wine, and in September-October, we had three weeks in Western Australia, chasing wildflowers and good food.

In June 2018, we spent three nights in Adelaide, taking a wine tour of the McLaren Vale and seeing the Impressionism exhibition at the Art Gallery of SA.
