The State of the Land, notes from a journey round Oz

My partner and I recently completed a long trip around Australia.  Not such an unusual thing these days, though we did some less-travelled parts, like the Tanami Road.  Also I’m as interested in seeing the lay of the land as seeing particular celebrated sites, and in noting how well the land is fairing under the (mis)management of whitefellas.  I wrote some despatches to friends in the course of our travels, and I have now added photos to illustrate my commentary.  The illustrated commentary is now on a page here.

So you can have a look if you’re interested.  It’s one person’s take on the country, fairly long, and with personal anecdotes mixed in.
