    The flip side of Tasmanian culture

    That Tasmania is a land of extremes is well known. Extreme weather, extreme beauty and extreme differences in the people. Somehow though, bar the occasional overly passionate car burning, tyre slashing or court case, it all just seems to work. Our day today seemed to sum that …

    Bedourie Dust Storm

    This dust storm that stopped time for an hour and a half in Bedourie, Western Queensland a few days ago, has brought back memories. Twice a week on average, through our  first 48 degree summer out at Ethabuka Reserve, the sky would darken and turn pink. …
