A land down under

It’s supposed to be Winter here at the moment but the daytime temperature is still nudging 20° Celsius now that the rain from last week has dried up. The country has been under drought conditions for six years so all precipitation is actually welcome.

This place is simply massive. The UK could fit into New South Wales alone seven times over. Australia is a place that is full of things that will kill you, ridiculous place names like Woolloomooloo or Ulladulla and strange-looking foodstuffs in-and-among the familiar. I’d never even heard of a durian or a garingale before never mind seen or eaten them.
