Down Under

Flinders Street Station-31186

We have been away for some time and it has been a long blogging break. So, I might as well continue where I left off, only I found this Christmas decoration on a railway station in a completely different part of the world 😉

Sunset St. Kilda-31484

When we left home, we had -5 degrees C. We arrived in full summer heat with beautiful sunsets to match.

Great Ocean Road-32405

And it is not only the cities that impress: The nature in this great country can impress anyone – here from what is known as The Great Ocean Road.

Kangaroo-31999

And this charming fellow has become a kind of symbol for the country.

Opera House Air Show-33772

An icon is also this magnificent Opera House – here at the centre of an impressive air-show on their recent National Day. Featured here is the worlds largest passenger air plane, the Airbus A 380. Some sight!

We visited only a tiny part og this large country, but I have lots of photos to look through. I hope to post several even more touristy photos in the time to come 🙂

PS The comments section is ABOVE the post 🙂

  4. Rune — Australia — what a fascinating place to visit I believe although I have never been there but know a few Australians that have filled me in on the place. Your photos are outstanding and I look forward to more as you sort through your photos. — barbara

  7. Welcome back — we will get to see small bits and pieces of Australia next year, but we still hope to spend an extensive time traveling around it on a land-based trip someday. Looking forward to your photos.

  8. Beautiful images in this post, Rune. The one of the coastline along the Great Ocean Road brings back memories for me of our last trip along the entire length of it in 2010 before leaving Australia. So thanks for that!
