Happy Australia Day

 Happy Australia Day to you all here in the land "Down Under".  We have chosen to exercise the freedom we sometimes take for granted here and have a nice relaxing day. When you travel through this land as we have been lucky enough to do you can't help but be awed by its strange beauty and feel such gratitude to have experienced it.
I thought I would share some favourite places with you....ones that touched my heart.
Rock Pool Carnarvon Gorge Queensland 

Springsure Queensland 
Yellow Water Billabong Kakadu National Park 
Sunrise Yellow Water Billabong Kakadu National Park 
Ubir Kakadu National Park 

Beautiful Arafura Sea Darwin

MacKenzie Falls, The Grampians Victoria
Just a tiny few of my favourite Aussie spots......we are so blessed!

Ok! Time for a cuppa and a piece of the delicious damper Hubby has been trying to perfect.
The Olives are for he and No.1 son....I don't like them!
I hope you enjoy celebrating in your own Aussie fashion.
