1994 we made our first trip to Australia, focusing on
the southeast, specifically New South Wales (Sydney, Blue Mountains),
Victoria (Melbourne), and the Australian Capital Territory, or ACT.
This trip resulted in some longlasting memories. Sydney was
beautiful, and the view of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour
Bridge at sunset were unforgettable. Staying in a cabin in the
Blue Mountains was notable for the bird life (especially the currowongs
who helpfully tapped at the kitchen window so we'd come outside and
feed them). Melbourne we'll always remember for the driving
feature, "right turn from left lane only". Canberra...a city of
curving streets (crescents) and the not-to-be-missed War Museum.
The Great Ocean Road, which we wanted to rename the "Grey Fantail Road
of Death". And on and on...
The photographic record of this trip is sadly very limited...but our
trip journal is linked below with a few photos of dubious quality :-)
