Driving Cape Tribulation

The Cape

Once you cross the Dainetree River the road is sealed all the way to the Cape Tribulation. This Drive is absolutely wonderful. The Beauty of the Australian Tropical rain forest at its best. The Bio Diversity is just amazing. When you get there take some time walking and exploring. This is a wonderful place.

Please Enjoy.

Outback Town

Farina forgotten outback town

One of my favourite towns in the outback is Farina  North of Port Augusta near the Flinders Ranges.
On the edge of the desert it was a wheat growing community which came and went.

I hav been visiting this town for 20 years and seen it at its worst but in recent times the friends of Farina are slowly rebuilding this town. Great camping area there by the way.

I have an other blog spot you might like to visit.

But remember to see m ore of my outback photos just go to

As an Australian landscape photographer there is nothing better that a walk around a town just to explore and see what you can photograph.

Australian Snow back country

You Have to get out there to take the photos 

When the weather  is bad you have to go out side and search for those photos, because when the weather changes and the cloud drops away you can see something wonderful.

Sure it is cold and windy but occasionally you will discover something wonderful.
The near frozen lake at the back of Falls Creek.

Can you see the old hut?

Australian Huts in snow

Snow covered Huts  in Australia

Hi everyone, like most of you throughout the world you might not realise that Australia has snow falls and a seasonal alpine area. This makes for some beautiful photo opportunities.

Yesterday I went cross country skiing 22km to take these pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

Wallace's hut,  Cattleman's Hut 11km of skiing from the nearest town. This hut is over 100 years old.
The Inside of the hut taken with a six second exposure, and yes I had to carry the tripod and all of the camera gear  the 11km out to the hut and return, making 22km.

Lots of hard work and fun

Discovered Boulders in the Outback.

Nature is truly amazing the things it can  make! 

Man is the only creature on the planet to see things not as they are ( just a rock) but what he would like to think they are.

You can buy this on my website if you chose www.australianphotos.com.au It was photographed at the Devils Marbles in the Northern Territory. It is not my intention to upset people with this blog or to be offensive in any way.

It Is titled Hard as a rock.

The "SuperMoon"


“Aim for the stars, and if you miss, you may hit the moon.”  
Last night would have been a good night for that, because the ‘Supermoon’ was so big over Melbourne you couldn’t have missed it.  This was a cold, hard look at 9.30 pm through a 600 mm lens on a Nikon D4 camera.

One of the difficulties in being a landscape/wildlife photographer is maintaining a constant level of fitness. Why do you need to be fit you may ask? In a lot of cases you just don’t get out of the car and take the picture quite often you may need to walk canoe ski or even climb some distance. By its self this can be no easy task but with heavy camera equipment you can struggle. One good way of maintaining this fitness is cycling, yesterday I rode 140km. Apart from the obvious benefits, constant exercise helps promote a healthy and successful mind, as is reflected in www.australianphotos.com.au

2013 What ever happened to 2012. 

In 2012 Australinphotos.com.au photographed and drove through central Australia Crossing the mighty Simpson Desert. We then drove across Queensland to Fraser Island. This was part of a six week photographic safari.

In late 2012 by popular demand we at Austalianphotos.com.au have launched a new product range of images.  This is known as the “compact” which is  for all of you who don't have the space for one of our spatular images. Our pricing also matches the new size available.

We have also added a link to Lloydhowlettphotography.com.au to the Australian photos we site. 

Please feel free to  visit our web site and view our constantly gallery of images.
