On this cloudy Australia Day, I thought I’d share some photos I took on a trip to the Blue Mountains in July last year. Although a vast amount of the country’s population lives on the coast, there’s more to this beautiful country than sand and ocean. Not being a lover of the beach myself (completely un-Australian, I know) and being originally from the bush where we were hundreds of kilometres away from the ocean, I have a great appreciation for the interior of our country and its natural beauty. So here are a few of my favourite photos from my trip to the Blue Mountain, itself not situated that far from the ocean, but you could be forgiven for thinking you were in an entirely different country. Happy Australia Day my fellow Aussies – be grateful every day that we get to live here.
