Tourist photos from Australia

I cannot remember where I left you with the last lot of tourist photos. I think I had just arrived in Melbourne and thence to Newcastle. Let us carry on dear reader. I think I left you at the airport in Newcastle. I spent a few days and bought a car for travelling. It was a Toyota people-mover. My brother Lawrie helped me pull all the seats out and put a bed in the back. There is plenty of head room and it is much better than a station wagon.

The first journey was out west through the Hunter Valley, stopping at Burning Mountain and Wallabadah, my old favourite camp sites.

Then through Nundle and the back way to Tamworth and still heading west.

I stopped opposite the pub at Attunga and photographed a Black Honeyeater.

West to Manilla, then a few days at Borah Creek , before the rain came I snuck out to Gunnedah and Coonabarabran.

The Namoi River was flowing at Boggabri but not at Narrabri. Where did the water go? Back to Borah Creek again.

I was amazed how black and furry these kangaroos were. Then back to Newcastle. And down south to the Bendeela Recreation Area – Kangaroo River.
