We had a lovely morning today, walking in the Budderoo National Park to Nellies Glen and to Warris Chair lookout up in the Great Dividing Range, south-west of Wollongong. Here are a few photos I took to show you what it is like there.

Blossoms on a banksia tree. Banksias were named after the botanist Sir Joseph Banks, who accompanied Captain James Cook on his exploration of the southern ocean in 1770.

 If you ever get to the Illawarra Coast of New South Wales, Australia, you will find some beautiful countryside and coastal views. Perhaps you’d better get here before the developers cover our countryside with housing estates!  (c) Linda Visman
