Its border marked the start of the 130km/h zone and serious croc country, the end of decent cell phone service and the beginning of a marked increase in biodiversity. Western Australia is littered with cattle stations and mines of all shapes and sizes, long, barren, fairly boring […]

We had allocated an entire day to MONA, the first day after arriving in Tasmania […]
