The Australian Outback

Photography Prints

Written by:Gary Wonning

A familiar sight in the outback, the road train pulls three trailers and is over 150 feet long.  They are needed to deliver food and supplies to the various isolated sections of the desert. They are the lifeline to most living in harsh conditions. Without them, many would be unable to get supplies on a regular basis. Because of the distances they must travel, the ability to pull three trailers makes it possible for the truckers to realize a profit.

The perfect way to start a day, an early morning balloon ride from Alice Springs. Located in the middle of Australia, Alice Springs is  about as isolated as one can get. The balloon ride is the best way to observe wildlife in the bush. Quiet and floating above the desert landscape, one can observe the animals below without them even noticing there is someone observing them.

Australia:Quinkan Hotel Located in Laura,Queensland Australia

 

Quinkan Hotel sign, Queensland Australia

Laura HotelThe Quinkan Hotel is located in the very tiny town of Laura, not far from the Laura River. Quinkan County was named after the Aboriginal spirits or ”Quinkans” who inhabit the sand stone bluffs at White Horse Gallery. This gallery contains one of the world’s most significant rock art displays.
The town also hosts the b i-annual Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival, one of the most spectacular displays of aboriginal dance and culture any where. Having been fortunate enough to have been able to attend this two day festival, if one is interested in ancient aboriginal culture.I can attest to the fact that it is well worth  one’s time to attend.
