‘I feel welcome here. Someone has left me a nice poker stick and firewood. I feel like an honoured guest at this place – which of course I am. No other humans. A resident Kite high in a neighbouring Red River Gum. Today I came across about 100 Red-tailed Black Cockatoos feeding heartily on some sort of grass 30mm high.’  All quotes come from my journey journal.

When setting out on the road from my home in Tasmania to Central Australia in April 2014, I had no idea that I would be on the road for 7 months. Alone with my trusty Subaru Forester, I allowed myself to wander and wonder. Not knowing exactly where I was going nor for how long. Australia is a remarkable land and provided me with many places to feel completely “at home”.

Here are some pictures I made along the way.

‘The Great Victoria Desert in Western Australia is a sandy one. East west sandhills made by the sea coming in here thousands and millions of years ago, carving into the cap rock and with wind erosion has undercut the rock and the sandhills formed from that sediment. According to local knowledge, these are some of the oldest rocks on Earth.’

‘The end of July 2014 and I’m in the Pilbara of Western Australia. Yinjibarndi country and memories of former times spent here in the early 90ties are flooding back. I have set up camp on the edge of the road on a private property called Pyramid Hill cattle station. It is getting dark and I am too tired from stopping all day to look at the beauty of this iron and spinifex country. I will not make it to Millstream tonight.’ – Naomi Howard
