In 1998, I spent a month in Sydney, and visited the Alice Springs area. In 2003, I spent three weeks in Sydney and Tasmania.
Here are memories of these trips: check the photos grouped by themes or read my diaries:
Australian animals page: including a koala and kangaroos, and less famous animals like kookaburras and a wombat.
Australian vegetation page: with the famous gum trees, a focus on the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney, and the flora of the red desert.
Sydney page: Sydney has its landmarks, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. But the city has also nice downtown views and neighbourhoods.
Sydney harbour page: it is a wonderful natural harbour, with famous beaches like Bondi and Manly. You can cross it using the ferries.
Blue Mountains page: west of Sydney, these mountains are the realm of the gum trees (eucalyptus). These blue-green trees give the place its name.
Kings Canyon page: this canyon is in the center of Australia. It mixes the red colour of the desert and a shelter for vegetation hidden in its midst.
Uluru and Kata Tjuta page: also in the center, these are very important places for aboriginal culture. They emerge strangely from the flat desert.
Tasmania page: south of mainland Australia, an island I love, with many different landscapes.
