Tathra Wharf

The Wharf has transformed over the years from a small jetty into a large wharf as the needs of the community changed. It was used to by farmers exporting goods to other coastal communities, livestock and others goods. The last freight ship to leave the wharf was in 1954. Today the wharf has been turned into a local icon. It is used regularly as a fishing spot and cafe. The local Tathra Surf Club hold the Wharf to Waves swim race every year starting from the Wharf.

Bungle Bungles, Purnululu National Park

Over the last 2 weeks I have had the opportunity to work up in the Kimberly and Top End Region. I was guiding a group of Gap Year students showing and experiencing new areas such as Purnululu National Park. The photo above is one of the many sunsets that we saw while we were traveling the Top End. It was very hot. We spent two mornings assisting rangers clearing paths, removing cane toads, and clearing campsites. The work we did made a difference to the appearance to areas that we cleaned. In the afternoon we explored the walks. On the first day we went to the Cathedral and Picaninny Creek. The next day we explored the Echidna Chasm. There is a lot more to see. I found the best time is in the evening and early mornings. Some places are best seen at midday.

Are they Dead?

I found this sculpture thought prevoking. Have we all lost tolerance, respect, fair play and commonsense? Can we bring them back? As I travel through different communities and cultures I find that they are all important to have. If you can not be tolerant and respectful in someones community, how can you be tolerant and respectful in your own?
Over the next 5 months I am going to be traveling and experiencing many things in different cultures and environments. I hope that I can show that tolerance, respect, fair play and commonsense are not dead.

What do you think? Are they still alive or have they died?

Rustic Shed

I drive past this shed everyday I go to work. There is something about it that I enjoy. Whether it be the mystery of who built it and what it was built for or if it was simply because of how long it has been there for. There is some rustic charm that I like about it. Over the last three years I have seen it filled with hay to feed the horses in the paddock.

Kookaburra sits in the….

I went for a walk along the Bega River one morning and found a couple of Kookaburras sitting in the Oak tree eyeing off the food on a picnic table. They were waiting for the family to leave something behind so that they could enjoy some also.
