The Ghan .... The 3000km trip between Darwin and Adelaide provides glimpses of Australia's unique landscape and wildlife. I travelled on the Ghan between Adelaide and Alice Springs in 1982.

Cruise and Walk Maria Island on the East Coast of beautiful Tasmania. The Ile Des Phoques has been our favourite place to cruise, swim, dive and explore ever since we began in 2007. The Ile Des Phoques (French for Island of Seals) is an absolute haven for marine life and has been declared one of the best cold water dives in the world.
