Happy Australia Day




This is one of my favourite views of Australia. I am, and always will be, happier in the bush than the city. Spending time in the bush is my favourite pastime and Wayne and I spend as much time as we can camping, walking and driving through this amazing land we have the privilege to live in.

We live in a country blessed with unique natural beauty, and it shouldn't be taken for granted. 

We live in a country blessed with a unique way of life, where we are free to live as we choose, and it shouldn't be taken for granted.

We live in a country with clean air, clean water, clean soil and we shouldn't take it for granted.

We live in a country where we are free to move from town to town, city to city,state to state as we choose, and we shouldn't take it for granted.

We live in a country where we can go to bed each night feeling safe from the horrors of war and conflict and we shouldn't take it for granted.

We live in a country with an ancient history of 40,000 years and a modern history of just 245 years. 

We can't change history, nor should we try. It is what it is.

We must learn from the triumphs and the tragedies of our history and use those lessons to make the future of Australia better for the next generation, so they can then learn from them as well and make Australia better for the generation after, continuing the learning for all generations to come.

Happy Australia Day everyone.
