Travel photography Australia

Australia is the reason I became a professional photographer. In my mid-twenties I caught a flight to the Land Down Under, spent my savings on a beat-up Ford Falcon (which I spray painted with leopard spots by the way!), and set off on the journey of a lifetime. 

My adventures took me across five of Australia’s state borders and through the cities of Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Alice Springs, and Adelaide. During my trip, I became obsessed with capturing the true beauty of the Australian outback and the mesmerizing sites of the country’s unique wildlife. These fond memories live on in the form of slide films that I captured throughout 1998 and 1999, all of which can now be purchased as travel stock photography of Australia.

What comes to mind when you think of Australia? Untouched sweeping beaches, kangaroos at sunset or the iconic Syndey Opera House? Maybe it’s all of those things, plus the undiscovered roads of the Aussie outback. 

With first-hand experience travelling through the many roads of Oz, I’d like to share some highlights of my trip and places that are at the top of my bucket list to visit on my next trip:

  • Red centre. Home to one of Australia’s most recognisable and protected sites, Uluru (Ayers Rock), there’s nothing like a trip to the red centre. Yes, it’s hot, yes, there are hundreds of flies and far too much dust. But at the centre of it all? Probably the most miraculous sunset you’ve seen in your life. Well, that’s unless you’ve been to Jordan.
  • Tropical north. Australia has many faces, but none are quite like the tropical north of Queensland. The host of one of the world’s oldest rainforests, The Daintree, and the Jurassic Cassowary bird, this region is full of unique sites to draw you in.
  • Brissie. If you’re more of a city-dweller, Brisbane is the place to be. Not quite as busy as Sydney, but far more laid back than Melbourne, Queensland’s capital offers up fantastic year-round weather, a lively social scene and world-class museums.
