I thought y’all might like to see a few of the pictures of my trip to Australia. The country is absolutely stunning, but I promise I won’t bore you with too many photos!

On our flight over, we had a somewhat dramatic sunrise somewhere over Fiji:

Our first stop was Melbourne where we took a spin on the Melbourne Star Ferris Wheel:

The first place we visited was Uluru which features two rock formations that are sacred to Aboriginal tribes:

From Uluru, we flew to Cairns where we saw a rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef:

From Cairns, we went to Sydney where we went to see the famous Bondi Beach and the Blue Mountains.

The next stop on our journey was Tasmania. We went to the top of Mount Wellington for an overview of the islands.

We also went to a wildlife rescue:

From Tasmania, we flew back to Melbourne.

    Oh, such great photos!
    Would love to visit this corner of the world – a friend and her husband have taken their sons out of school for a year and are travelling and just back in Australia after NZ, it does look a fabulous place. One day!!!
