Australia, known as the “Land Down Under,” is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. There is so much to see in Australia that I couldn’t keep this section to just ten photos. You will see that a couple of my top ten photos from my time in Australia are actually photosets. I spent the majority of my time in Sydney, the Red Centre of the Northern Territory, and the Victoria State. I hope you enjoy “Buzzin’ Around Australia in 10 (plus) photos!

Simpsons Gap in the West MacDonnell Range

Located in the Red Centre of the Northern Territory, Simpsons Gap was one of the first stops on my tour of the West MacDonnell Ranges.  When I took this picture, the sun was at the perfect angle to bring out the bright red colors.  I could truly see why they call this area the “Red Centre.”  To learn more about Simpsons Gap and the West MacDonnell Ranges, click HERE.

My Favorite Koala Picture

During my visit to Australia, I wanted to see a koala. It turns out that seeing, and even petting, a koala was much easier than I thought. These photos come from two different wildlife sanctuaries. The photo of “Daisy Feeling Shy” was taken at the Featherdale Wildlife Park in Sydney, and the zoomed-in koala photo was taken at the Moonlit Wildlife Sanctuary near Melbourne.

The Colorful Brighton Bathing Boxes

The Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes were originally built to protect modesty during the Victorian Era. Owners would use the boxes to change into their bathing suits. Today, although they really don’t serve a purpose, the bathing boxes are still popular. One recently sold for over AUS$250,000. I took this picture because I thought it showed a few of the unique colors and designs. To learn more about the Brighton Bathing Boxes, click HERE.

The 12 Apostles Seen From a Helicopter During My Great Ocean Road Tour

During my tour of the Great Ocean Road, my guide insisted that a helicopter tour was the best way to see the beautiful rock formations.  To ensure that I could take the helicopter tour, he dropped off the rest of the tour members and made a special trip to the helicopter depot.  I took this picture looking out the window of the helicopter.  To learn more about the 12 Apostles and the Great Ocean Road Tour, click HERE.
