What staggers me John is that in 1860 Burke and Wills set out with a party of 19 men to cross the continent from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria (approx. 2,000mi) with horses, wagons and camels. They reached their destination but all but one perished on the way back. Looking at the formidable terrain one can only imagine the hardships they faced.

Thanks Iain - certainly a stark contrast to Scotland ... no lochs, no tarns, no mountains - and almost a constant 32'C heat year round!

Thanks Glenn - The intensity of the Outback sunsets are amazing. It has to do with red dust particles in the atmosphere I believe.

Re: Vanishing Point

Wow, the colours are stunning, particularly in the first two and that vast empty landscape make for quite an image Mark.

Yes John, I didn't realise quite how big it is until I did the tour for the first time on my own. I took a similar route way back in the 70's with Janette and our four kids but we were well equipped and took months to do it.

Thanks Huw - the landscape is vast and flat but actually not empty, it just appears that way. It is carpeted with vegetation, wildflowers and shrubs. Six months of the year it's the dry season, and then comes the wet and season when floods spread over the plains.

Re: Vanishing Point

The space and colour is just wonderful. What does 375 signify? Is it the bridge number?

What a vast place, hard to believe in our mostly over crowded country! Excellent set, thanks for sharing.

Well said! I'm planning a long-term trip to NZ to see family, and perhaps should try and save my pennies for a stay in OZ on the way!

Re: Vanishing Point

Great if you can David but after this month the wet season starts and the top half of Oz above the Tropic of Capricorn, is the place not to be.

3 great images Mark, excellent colours and a real sense of how vast your landscape is.

Re: Vanishing Point

Vast, flat and silent Steve. You have to be in it to experience a certain sense of aloneness and exhilaration it brings - much like a Scot might feel climbing a high mountain no doubt.
