We thought we would do a different post this week, instead of our usual vintage post , we wanted to share with you all a little snippet of Australia- We have a lot of readers from overseas that may never have visited this large island in the sea, so thought we would share some photos of this very diverse country.
This weekend is the national celebration of ‘Australia day’ annually celebrated on the 26th January and marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the first fleet of British ships. Basically it means we all get a public holiday to party and don’t have to go to work YAY!!
So, here are a few photos of our beautiful, but often barren country- very diverse, with gorgeous beaches and desolate deserts. We are well known for our oversized tacky ‘tourist’ attractions, or driving through lonely landscapes to suddenly be confronted with snow and chunks of ice from a recent snow fall caused by a particularly cold night. Or, how about the small quirky OP shops found in little out of the way country towns.
Some say Australia is a lucky country…we just call it home!
