Starting in South Western Australia, photographing the endemic birds, beautiful weird flowers and the stunning south western orchids of the Stirling mountain range. A long drive across the Nullabor Desert Nation Park stopping at the famous Heyre Birds Observatory. Then to South Australia visiting several national parks, rich in wildlife, especially the colourful cockatoo and finally finishing the journey at the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.
