The following images are a mere snap shot of the many that I took during the 3 weeks I was on the island continents east coast. Although this trip and Australia wasn't one of my favoured trips at the time I have found increasingly fond memories as I have updated the following gallery some 7 years later. There are still some wrinkles I have with the trip but I have found reminiscing about the Platypus at Kingfisher Lodge in the spotlight stream, the outback at Georgetown, the seabirds of Michalmas Cay, the Galah and Rock Wallabies of Granit Gorge and so on has got me an urge to return to the big Red and do a north to south trip from the Northern Territories to Ayres Rock to the south coast for Pacific Gull and then back up to Queensland.

Anyway hopefully these images will show some of the delights of this continent apart.
