A majestic welcome

By matthew ·  · From My Back Roads

Throughout the Wheat Belt region, the salmon gums are a stand-out feature. Often alone in a farmland vista under a clear blue sky, and along our road verges, at times forming a powerful cathedral-like avenue. It's a sight travellers enjoy.  For people who live here, it's part of who we are.

With minimal road reserve in the wheat belt, careful and sensitive development of our roadways is critical. Without our protection, the sun may be setting on these giants.

For me, getting home after a break away is always good, especially with this 'majestic welcome'.

When we crossed the Nullabor, I stopped to take a photo of these beautiful salmon trees, a real novelty, and after spending a night at Norseman, we hung a left and went down to Esperence, so pleased we did, the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen.



Seeing this dingo

Seeing this dingo with her nose dusted in the burnt red dirt laying in her den has been the highlight of my week! Her sauntering glance of recognition registers as we stumble across her brilliant red den in the Tanami Desert. The Tanami continues to deliver these amazing surprises! Such a wonderful spot!

What a great experience to have.

The poor people of Tathra are in the news at the moment with the bushfires, it's a beautiful spot and it's a shame people are cancelling their Easter holiday.


"Wildlife ranger Zacharia Mutai comforts Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on the planet, moments before he passed away March 19, 2018 at Ol Pejeta Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya."  He was euthanized. He was well beyond breeding age, and had been struggling with various illnesses, including infections for some time. They said he had been suffering for a while.


Such a very sad story.

Tumbleweed is so out of control in a north-east Victorian town that a resident has been blocked from entering her home.

Native grass known as hairy panic, or witch grass, is in plague proportions in Laceby, south of Wangaratta, with residents battling the outbreak for the past seven weeks.

Full ABC story.

What a great pic, thanks RnR, look horrible, hairy panic seems an apt name for it.
