Gordon Smith's Outback Adventures

20090520-09-48-34-outback2009-warri-gate Gordon Smith, one of my all time favourite New England photo bloggers, is now publishing the photos of his trip to out back NSW and Queensland.

This quite spectacular photo shows the road up to the Warri gate on the NSW/Queensland border. It really captures the vastness.

I have spoken many times on this and my other blogs about the way we are ripping the guts out of inland Australia. I have had little impact.

In looking at this photo remember not just its beauty, but the fact that fewer people now live in areas like this than was the case at the time of European settlement.

You will find Gordon's full series here.
