A day after ex tropical cyclone Marcia passed through Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, I checked out some of the overflowing dams. Check out the video compilation.
A trip around Bruny Island - including the southern-most point in the world that I'll ever get to!
Amazing views - right next to Hobart.
Nice walk and beautiful views
Lilydale Falls and Bridestowe Lavendar Farm
Spectacular gorge right in the heart of Launceston, Tasmania. We were lucky enough to see a seal sunning itself.
A walk at South Bank on the G20 public holiday.
Another nice dam/lake not far from Brisbane.
Taken at Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Gully in Goonellabah (just near Lismore). This preserved corridor beside a creek is a haven for all sorts of birds and other wildlife.
Amazing bird life at Brisbane Forest Park.
My first visit to Australia Zoo.
My first visit to Sea World when Henry the Polar Bear was on display. He was extremely playful.
Found some half-decent photos from all the ones that I took.
Awesome day around Ballina and Byron Bay. Got some great sunset photos at the lighthouse.
My previous visit was just after the dam was raised. Now it's overflowing! Check out the comparison photos.
A week after the heavy rain. Unfortunately the Purling Brook Falls and Twin Falls walks were closed.
I had nothing better to do so I checked out a few of the dams south-east of Perth.
When I saw a brochure for this train trip, I just had to go on it!
Admiring the views from a couple of points just south of Perth.
The Zoo was pretty amazing. It was about 10 times the size of Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary but about $10 less to get in!
An interesting tour through this historic prison.
One of my favourite destinations during my trip. The variety of wildlife was amazing!
Old Railway Tunnel, Hovea Falls and a visit to Mundaring Weir.
Having a look around the city area of Perth - including a visit to Bell Tower.
We only saw a small area of this beautiful island.
Night time shots from Kings Park and South Perth
The sights around Fremantle
My second visit to Lone Pine.
My work colleague Lea-anne had an extra ticket so invited me along to their Steam Punk Steam Train Sunday.
My first time to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary! It's more of a zoo than a Koala Sanctuary. Lots of different animals!
My first time walking the Twin Falls circuit at Springbrook.
A lovely day at the Sunshine Coast.
Checked out the newly reopened (after raising) Hinze Dam (impressive) and one of my favourite locations (Springbrook).
The first time I took a good camera to Sea World.
It was the clearest view I had every seen from Mt Coot-tha. Luckily I had my camera with me after visiting the Model Train Show earlier in the day.
The last time I went to the Brisbane Model Train show was in 1999. Thought it was about time to go again. The technology now is amazing. You can control individual trains rather than simply applying power to a track.
My first visit to Natural Bridge. It's pretty spectacular!
During previous visits to the spillway at Wivenhoe Dam, I wondered how awesome it'd be to see the water rushing through the floodgates. When the opportunity arose, I headed off to have a look. Unfortunately half of Brisbane had the same idea! After battling the traffic, we headed to Somerset Dam.
After hearing that a Steam Train would be running on the Suburban network, I hurried home from Maryborough to ride the train all the way to Ipswich.
My first visit to Alma Park Zoo.
My first trip to Byron Bay - the most Eastern part of the Australian mainland.
Another trip organised through ''Rail: Back on Track''. Interesting day - although a lot of it was more for people interested in mechanics and engineering.
After running for 16 years, the Police Academy Stunt Show at Movie World on the Gold Coast had its final show on 30 April 2008. This is a tribute to one of the longest running attractions in the world.
Hadn't been to Underwater World in about 15 years.
I went on a trip to the Mayne Rail Yard at Bowen Hills as part of a group from ''Rail: Back on Track''. We were able to have a go of the train simulator which was fun. I think I wanna be a train driver!
I headed down to Grafton on the Queen's Birthday long weekend to visit my friend Wayne. He was nice enough to organise a cruise for us in nearby Yamba. After the cruise, we checked out the sites in Yamba and then the lookout at MacLean on the way back to Grafton.
The parade is one of the highlights of ''Easter in the Country'' held at Roma each year, along with the markets, drag races, speedway, rodeo, etc.
The Callide mine, power station and dam are must-sees if you're ever in the Biloela area.
A weekend trip to Toowoomba during a week-and-a-half break from work.
A hail storm made its way across Brisbane. Luckily we received warning from people in areas that had already been hit.
I was feeling a bit bored and decided to go for a walk with my camera to Ululah Lagoon in Maryborough. I call it my ''bored walk''. It's amazing what you can find virtually in your back yard.
I went on a holiday trip and met a number of people I'd be chatting to on the Internet for some time and their circles of friends. After a few days in Rockhampton, I headed up to Townsville. While I was there, we went for a trip to Paluma, just north of Townsville, where we encountered tranquil rock pools and spectacular views.
