The many flavours of remote outback living, get a taste.
First up, this is where all the creative work happens, I enjoy sitting out here and write.
The agricultural show was in town a few weeks a go, aside from your usual petting zoos there was also a good selection of tractors on display.
No better way to wrap up the weekend than sitting around with people watching fireworks.
Second last game of the season, last quarter, Demons down by a couple of goals. Being Waterboy at the local footy game.
Dicks come in all shapes and sizes.
This weekend we volunteered at the funeral of a well-respected Aboriginal leader in the region. Dressed in black and purple, as many as 700 people braved the heat and attended the early afternoon service. They shared their stories and paid their respect. The celebration ran late into the night followed by more stories and picture shows.
Vegetarians look away. My better half stepping outside her comfort zone for the good of the community.
Packed and loaded for camping. Also happens to be my first off-road driving experience, where I managed to get the Hilux bogged leaving a gorge…
Our camp site. The little one getting on with the job.
Bonfire is among the best things in life. Invariably accompanied by roasted marshmallows and great stories and last night was no exception.
Some scenic snaps
My favourite times of the day here are dusk and dawn.
This ridiculous looking tree is called a Boab tree, also known as Adansonia gregorii. Sheltering Kelly’s Knob in the background.
Boab tree is just so ridiculous but I love it.
Atop Kelly’s Knob overlooking the town centre and Ord River in the distance.
Ivanhoe’s Crossing. Scroll in and you’ll see a salt water crocodile sun baking on the rock mid-frame.
