Australia this Weekend

This Weekend in Photos
Sailboarding,Fishing,Boating and A Doggy weekend

   Volcanic peaks, verdant rainforests, white sand beaches, rolling surf and tranquil lagoon combine to form an idyllic experience. Here visitors have the opportunity to view prolific bird and marine life, and to discover the world's most southern coral reefs.

       No picture is more often associated with Australia than a photograph of Ayers Rock at sunset. It is a compelling picture: the deep orange, glowing above the already darkened expanse of the Outback, perfectly flat, the endless horizon... No wonder Uluru is a magnet to tourists.

     The road along the coast of Victoria between Torquay in east and Portland in west, is one of Australia’s most beautiful drives. It passes some lovely coastal towns, national parks with temperate rainforests, and some of Australia’s most famous rock formations – the Twelve Apostles in Port Campbell National Park.

     The Blue Mountains offer spectacular scenery, plantlife and wildlife. The mountains reach a height of 1100m, and have been given their name due to the blue haze that hovered above the mountains produced by the oil from the plentiful Eucalyptus trees.

Sunrises from Weekends Past

       One of Australia's most remarkable natural gifts, the Great Barrier Reef is blessed with the breathtaking beauty of the world's largest coral reef. The reef contains an abundance of marine life and comprises of over 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays and literally hundreds of picturesque tropical islands with some of the worlds most beautiful sun-soaked, golden beaches.
