Day 41: I Want More Australia Outback, A Photo Mashup

Day 41: No More Photos

Day 41: No More Photos

Day 41 brought me to staring at my computer screen at 11pm with nothing to write about. Well, not really nothing. I have a bunch of article ideas but they would involve a lot of writing and thinking, something I’m not capable of doing at this time. I’m all writed out.

So, as a total cop out, I decided to put together a little photo mashup of my trip last year to the outback region of New South Wales. Actually, I’ve been writing a little bit about it over on WhyGo Australia (this is a good one to check out), so I have been thinking a lot lately about how I want more outback adventure in my life.

The photos in this post feature Silverton, Menindee, Living Desert Reserve and all the nothingness in between. Enjoy!

A rest stop in the middle of nowhere, if you can’t tell.

You might remember this post about what the Silverton Cafe sells.

Mad Max car! I doubt it’s drivable.

You might remember this photo from the post, “Menindee, the Place Where Dreams Dry Up & Die.”

Did you giggle? I did while taking this photo.

The sky around these parts… stunning.

Ah… the gorgeous, barren country that is Australia.

    I love outback Australia. These pictures are making me miss my time from Adelaide up to Alice. The people are awesome (so happy to see you!) and just the big sky and emptiness of it all, it was actually a great last trip before I came home.

      There’s nothing there, but it’s awesome! I don’t think it is for everyone, but I like more off-the-beaten-path type of travels.

    The Australian Outback is great, some people hate the emptiness and the long straight roads, but I loved it there. I see Menindee still hasnt changed much 🙂 When I was in Broken Hill in went there as well, but it was bit disappointing to see it all dried up.

      Haha, nope still dried up 🙂 I hate that all the brochures showed sunsets over lakes. Everyone had fishing photos up from in the past — definitely not how it is now.

    Great photos, Brooke! Next time visiting Australia, I want to do this! Great shot of the old stuff. The bottles, the spoons, the cars, but sad to see the RIP. Mad Max is our one (I mean 3) favourite movies.

      Awesome! yes, you should do this 🙂
