Here’s the final round of photos from our road trip across Australia. We have photos from three capital cities, three music festivals, and the return trip across the Nullarbor. Go grab yourself a drink and settle at your desk, because you’ll be here for some time!
1. Sydney to Australian Capital Territory – 23-24 March 2005. We had our second rainy day in Sydney, followed by clear skies as we left for Canberra. Read a previous entry here.
3. Canberra – 29-30 March 2005. We took so many photos at the nation’s capital, we had to group them in a couple of albums. This one has visits to Parliament House, Old Parliament House and the National Gallery of Australia.
4. North Canberra – 31 March 2005. More photos of Canberra, this time north of Lake Burley Griffin, where we visited Canberra Museum And Gallery, ScreenSound Australia, and National Museum of Australia.
5. Canberra to Snowy Mountains – 1 April 2005. We started out on a very misty Canberra morning towards the Snowy Mountains. It was a very steep and winding drive, but the views were spectacular.
6. The Man From Snowy River Bush Festival – 1-2 April 2005. Our final festival over east, where we sold out of dulcimers. It was a weekend of music and poetry readings.
7. Corryong to Melbourne – 3 April 2005. We visited Jack Riley’s grave, the man of whom we had the festival for, and it was a day’s drive to Melbourne after. It was good to catch up with friends that evening.
8. Melbourne – 4-9 April 2005. We spent the week in Melbourne, visiting the sights, and soaking in the architecture. Oh, there’s also Linda and Kim’s dog, Ziggy, who is now second most photographed dog in the world after Cajun.
9. Melbourne to Adelaide – 10 April 2005. The day trip to Adelaide seemed shorter than we thought it would. The latter would be our final city stop before our drive across the Nullarbor.
10. Across The Nullarbor – 11-13 April 2005. It took a day less to cross the Nullarbor, but I took more photos than before. Nevertheless, the Great Australian Bight was breathtaking.
11. Fairbridge Festival – 15-17 April 2005. We’ve come full circle with this festival. It was our first biggie last year, and it was a good way to end our festival circuit for 2005. Read Nick’s round-up here.
