These were taken yesterday from the viewing platform that looks out upon the highest mountain in Australia, Kosciusko. It is breathtakingly beautiful up there. It has a desolate beauty with bare looking, rolling, rocky mountains, but if you look really closely you will see the vivid colour in the native fauna.
From here it is either a 16 or 18 km walk to the summit. I am quite keen to do it when Violet is older. I have pleasant memories of doing the walk with my family when I was about 10.
As we drove through the towns and caught little bits of their Anzac parades, it made me feel even more appreciative of this beautiful country that we have here.
