Far Away Australia

How about visiting the Ross River cattle station? A billy tea and damper picnic near the historic homestead.

Whip cracking and boomerang throwing lessons available. How far away from it all can you get?

This time Australian Tourist Commission chose Richard Woldendorp to shoot the photo.

Nowadays Wolendorp is making some beautiful aerial landscape photography and exhibits at Boutwell Draper Gallery.

    1. Yes probably. Seems it was a big campaign. I reckon you could run with it now as not much has changed!
