Last slide show for the day. These pictures are around Port Douglas. Nothing of Mossman Gorge but there are a few of the Daintree Rainforest (much older than the Amazon Rainforest) and finally the Great Barrier Reef. Pictures of the reef are thanks to middle kidlet who had the waterproof camera.

(Sidenote about Mount Sorrow hike... this was one of the hardest hikes that I've ever hiked. It was steep and lined with vines and trees.)

One more slide show to enjoy. This one of two different trips. Our Easter Weekend trip to Tasmania last year.. a few pictures and then our trip to the Red Centre around Alice Springs in the Northern Territories.

We loved our travels. I know that some think we are showing way too much of the "dry" part of the country but that is a great portion of the country. Next post... something very different - Port Douglas and green of the rainforest.

Here's Tasmania and Northern Territories. (This time I've added titles.)

Trying something new. I'm going to post several slideshows similar to what dh had on his laptop when we were home in NJ.

I know this doesn't substitute for a blog post about these places but this is to give a taste of our sights in the area.

This slide show is of the Victoria area - our home away from New Jersey, Melbourne with few pictures of Victoria Market (if you look closely you can find me in one photo), Churchill National Park (our favorite kanga sighting walk), Yarra Bend (with flying foxes - yes bats), Great Ocean Road, Grampians (in the spring) & Wilson's Prom (when it is sunny).
