I have always had a love for the Australian Bush and most of all, the High Country of South Eastern Victoria. There is nothing better in life than to sit by the campfire and hear the sounds of the bush day or night, there is always something to see. 

Travelling can be great, but without local knowledge you can miss so much, the local tracks and hidden camp sites. The history of the early miners, settlers and the many stories from a bygone era can be found across the Victorias high country and much of Australia. 

For over 44 years I have collected a large range of photos, videos and sound files Etc! from all around Australia, there is always something new to find or see. 

Its all out there, all you have to do is go to enjoy the experience.

You never know you might meet me out and about some where across the Australia.

South Australia

Great places

South Eastern Victoria.


Some of the common plants from South Eastern Victoria.



Some of the Orchids from South Eastern Victoria.



Some of the Huts are still there, but so many have disappeared now some due to vandalism. It's a shame that so much of the history has been lost for ever.

We lost many more huts in the last fires (2002). All that is left of the huts are photos.         




Just a few of the so many camping places in South Eastern  Victoria.
