We did some computer work in the morning before heading down to Victor Harbor. We had a choice of wildlife parks to visit and decided on Urimbirra (http://urimbirra.com.au/) since it was a bit cheaper and we hadn't been further south yet. We ate lunch ... Read more >

Woo-woo! It was a mostly sunny day and we decided to drive up to Port Adelaide so that we could find the tall ship before tomorrow morning. It helped that the Railway and Maritime Museums were close by. The drive took us through the small suburbs south ... Read more >

After dinner, we decided to take one last trip around Uluru. On our way out, we stopped in the carpark to watch a colorful parrot eating a plum. He certainly was enjoying his sweet snack! After we entered the Park, we had a quick stop in the sunset parking ... Read more >

Mala Walk and Kata Tjuta

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 9 Mar 2014 | Views [50]

We didn't dawdle getting up and about this morning as we wanted to join the Mala Walk at 0800. The interesting part for this walk was that is was guided by one of the park rangers (Steve, in our case). The walk was listed as easy (1 km round trip, flat ... Read more >

Kent spent most of the day cataloguing, sorting, and choosing photos for our travel blog. He managed to get caught up with everything except the captions. In addition to the photos, he updated all the blog text. After an early dinner, we went out for ... Read more >

Kuranda Scenic Railway

There are plenty of shops in Kuranda (http://www.kuranda.org/), running the gamut from tourist traps to native art. We found some nice limited edition prints of parrots that were just right for Pam, in addition to a picturesque tropical scene for ourselves.... Read more >
