Another beautiful day exploring the streets of Paris.
This has been just one of the many times I have visited Great Dixter and is still somewhere I would like to go back. The gardens are beautifully set out in a huge variety of styles that are different every time you visit. The best time of year to go would definitely be June, July or August but it is also lovely in spring.
The beautiful Mossman Gorge, Queensland, Australia. Ten seconds after I took this shot I turned around only to slip on a rock and my camera went flying into the water. Luckily I managed to fish it out and save the memory card but the camera did not survive. Nevertheless can’t wait to be back in Oz this summer just two months to go!!!!
The next part of our epic road trip took us across from Tenant Creek, Northern Territory through quiet northern Queensland to the stunning east coast. The first stop we made was Townsville, although the weather wasn’t the best we thought it was a great city with lots to do. Climbing up Castle Hill is definitely recommend the view from the top is amazing.
As we began to move down the coast the weather got progressively worse, so we bypassed many places we had hoped to stop unfortunately in a bit of a rush to get back to Sydney. Further down the east coast we met some friends who recommended a visit to Rainbow Beach. We loved it so much instead of staying one night we stayed for three, but wished it could have been longer.

Having been quite disappointed by the fairly flat, bare, landscape of South Australia arriving at the border got us extremely excited for what lay ahead and we were rewarded straight away by a dramatic change in the surroundings.
Our next stop had to be, the highlight of our trip, the iconic Uluru or Ayers Rock. It was quite expensive to get into the national park but it is well worth it. We arrived mid afternoon after driving most of the day so headed into the park to have a quick look before finding somewhere to camp…

Despite the weather being a little temperamental had a lovely couple of days in Plymouth, Devon. The city is not particularly nice but once you get to the coast the sea views are great. The red and white lighthouse really makes the scene. There are cafes and restaurants every few hundred metres, Barbican harbour is also a great place to go with lots of options from bars to pubs. The only criticism is that there weren’t enough people about, something I rarely say but possibly just due to the time of year.
