A long way from home; a long way to go…

This trip is like joining up the dots between all the places ever I’ve visited over the years, flying over this vast land, but never experiencing it; discovering the geography of the land between. I’m now 2018 kilometres from Sydney and 1924 kilometres from Perth and just beginning to get an inkling of how vast Australia is. I’m looking forward to what is to come and revisiting a lot of these places again on the way home.

South Australia has these incredibly long jetties all along its coastline. Their only purpose seems to be recreational fishing. How good is that? © Rob Walls 2011

    By the look of that b/fast I reckon you’ll fart all the way across the Nulabor! Gotta love the man

  2. I envy you. It reminds me of my trip around Australia in 1995. Have fun!
