Wingham Brush and the bats

Wingham Brush near Taree, NSW is an amazing place where bat colonies live.  The trees above one are thick with bats.

The bats closer up.

Andrew walking among the trees.

and look at those roots.

Could not resist another shot of branches full of bats.

You too can have a blook

What is a blook you ask?  A blook, according to Wikipedia is a book of a blog.  The book shown above is our treasured book of our year of travel around Australia.

The book is completely computer produced from our blog, with contents page and the photos we took and the text we wrote.

We treasure it and we plan to order one shortly of our current trip which will be titled Andrew and Nikki go inland.

And for your overseas travel here is another wonderful photo album you can make.  This method allows you a little more artistic freedom than the blog.

The photos are all your own and you use the software provided by one of the suppliers.  We use albumworks but there is also Blurb and Harvey Norman also does them.  The self created photo albums are also wonderful momentoes of travel.  Just do a Google search on albumworks, blurb, harveynorman.

Our inland trip

We have now reached the coast and are resting at Coffs Harbour.  We consider our inland trip completed except for the Birdsville Innamincka leg of the journey not realised.  We will make up for that sometime soon.

Here is a rough outline of where we have been on this trip.

Our around OZ trip on the outside of Australia was completed in 2011.
