FC: Our 2010 Australian Adventure

1: It is a tough job but someone has to do it. We check out birding sites and try out activities from June until mid October. | We visit many places, see many birds, and have the trip of a lifetime

5: Miranda Wetlands, Spotted Catbird, mudskipper, and Cairns Municipal Pool

6: Train ride to Kuranda, skyrail back down to Tjapukai, an aboriginal attraction

7: We learn to throw a boomerang, play the didgeridoo and throw a spear | Bert often looks like this taking pictures

9: Watch out for the roadtrains We are really in the Outback | One of the churches we visited | Kangaroos beware | Campground

10: After a long day's drive, it is time to relax

11: Just a beautiful place to spend the night

18: My favorite campsite at Devils Marbles

19: Blue Fairy Wren, Simpson's Gap, Tropic of Capricorn, Little Green Men and more Outback

20: On our way to Ayer's Rock

21: We join two tours of this fascinating place | and squeeze in a visit to the Olga's

22: Yet another's day drive and we are STILL in the Outback | This is Cobber Pedy, famous for its opal mines

23: Not much of a campground | Our tour bus for the mines | Spent opal digs | Golf here? | Golf "greens" are black from oil | Opal

24: Our tour takes us to an underground mine and house. Do you think Bert finds opals?

25: I think we left the Outback today. I see green.

26: Chores at camp before our tour of the wine country

28: A beautiful campground before we head to the ferry at Cape Jervis

29: Kangaroo Island

30: A beautiful day on the island

31: A free ferry crossing over a river

32: Canola fields, a winery for tasting, alone at the campground, along the Southern coast

34: The southern coast has much to offer for both of us

35: A fight between Black Swans | Little Blue Penguins come in for the night

36: Koala | Little blue fairy wren | We get ready for the overnight ferry from Melbourne to Tasmania

37: Crazy Lapwing builds nest on curb then attacks those who park nearby

38: Our first day on Tasmania takes us to Stanley

39: We encounter snow for heaven's sake | Finally we taste the wine from Wicks Estates

40: Walking on an icy path around Dove Lake is not my idea of fun. But the scenery is beautiful | We encounter a wombat up close and personal

41: Still cold and wet but we get in a hike nevertheless

42: Love that Pink Robin. Bert birds the campgrounds of Tasmania

43: Flame Robin, Spotted Pardalote, Hobart from the lookout and a ferry ride to Bruny Island. Is that Shari at Mt. Wellington in 1963?

44: Bruny Island and a rainy day for Saturday market at Salamanca, Hobart

55: We tour Sydney by train, by bus tour and by foot. I love it.

56: A day of sightseeing in Sydney before heading to the Blue Mountains

57: Queensland Outback and more opal shopping

58: We wait 4 hours for the river to go down enough to cross. Then we carefully follow a big truck so its wake pushes the water aside to make it shallower for us.

59: We enjoy Cairns for a week before the caravan starts and check out some restaurants. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it!

60: But it is all about the birds
