Australia facts & history in brief
In 1987 I went to Australia and explored
it from head to toe.
My pages will show some of the ususal
and unusual sights my camera
managed to catch.
Some of my photos were lost by
the processors, like Kununurra,
Broome, Carnarvon, Geraldton
All this photos had to be scanned, sorry.
No worries, as the Aussies say. Huh?
