4051 kilometers, about the same distance as driving from Sydney to Perth. Why? Just to see what’s there. I had never been through ‘outback’ New South Wales and when my wife decided she wanted to see some wide-open spaces and red earth for a birthday trip, it just seemed the logical thing to do.
With no real plan, other than to get to Cameron Corner in South West Queensland where the three states, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland meet, we loaded the van and drove out of Sydney.
For me, living in Australia is all about the coast. Being near to it (preferably within sight of it) has been a staple of my life. A road trip to this incredible country’s arid interior was something special, something different, something I will remember for a long time and something I think I now have a taste for…
All the clichés run true when you head west, but there were still surprises every day. Some may see vast distances of nothing, but look a little deeper and that vastness is something to cherish.
To give a little perspective to these photographs, and to just how big Australia is, we have a population of 3.1 people per square kilometer in this country. Macao has a population of 22,477.7 people per square kilometer. Something to ponder as you scroll down and enjoy these photographs; the red earth and the endless horizons with not another human in sight.
Enjoy your day,
