Australia / Rainy Cairns

When in Cairns, I found myself amongst the rain but a few days spent in the rainy season isn't bad. It's fact that when the rain goes, the fruit follows and here the glorious greenery thrived after the repeated showers that poured on our touristy backs. 

- Babinda Boulders


- Millaa Millaa falls

So when faced with the rain, where do you go? I'm pretty glad we managed to find the these incredibly, beautiful waterfalls it was probably one of my favourite days. I'll always have fond memories of us running down to each one in our swim wear (to apparently look as English as we could! Or not get our clothes wet, I'll let you decide). Have you found the fruit from your season? Emily x

Australia / Alice Springs

Next on the road trip was Alice Springs. As you all know I'm pretty keen on photographing beautiful cafe's. So here's one that I found along the way. 

I was very much captivated by it's colour and light. - My two favourite things to photograph.

I hope you enjoyed. As always - more to come. Emily x

Australia - Uluru / Ayers Rock

In the middle of the desert, within outback Australia. Stands the magnificent, Uluru/Ayers Rock. 

It's classed as one of the seven wonders of the world but what's all the fuss about? Uluru has a great cultural significance, and is considered a spiritual, sacred place by the aborigines. The natural landmark is mainly known for it's sheer size, as one of the largest rocks in the world. 

- Up close and personal. Being able to walk around the base of the rock, is pretty impressive. The sandstone formation really is rather fantastic.

The size of Uluru is:
  • 1,142 feet high — equivalent to a 95-story building
  • 2,830 feet above sea level
  • 2.2 miles long
  • 1.2 miles wide
  • 5.8 miles around the base

After a beautiful sunset the stars came out to play, and they were truly incredible. If you want to journey with me, my next few posts will be travel orientated, showing the other places we ventured. Emily x
