Norfolk Island

A recent visit to Norfolk which is an amazing small Island in the South Pacific with some great scenery and climate. It’s the kind of place for people who like to get away from it all and not be interrupted by white noise such as phones, traffic and crowds. You won’t find any large shopping malls here but what you will find is friendly local hospitality and a lot of things to see, especially things of historic value. It is also a place where the locals come out to wave planes goodbye at the airport. I think that sums it up right there and I was lucky enough able to capture a few pics during my stay.

Call of the wild

Here are some of the local wild life caught around my treks through National parks around the Sunshine coast area. The Koala’s get an easy life with 16-18 hours sleep a day so when you do spot them it’s usually … Continue reading

This was a annual family holiday place in my teens that involved a long road trip not unlike the “Griswolds” vacation treks. But pleasant memories and long days at the beach the town has not changed much at all. It … Continue reading
