Australia Part 1- The Animals

I’ve just got back from a month long trip to Australia, climbing at both Mount Arapiles and The Grampians.

In order to buy some time whilst the jet lag wears off, here’s a few pictures of some of the hilarious wildlife – it really was off the scale! Alongside that there’s a few landscape shots of what was, from the small part of it we saw, an absolutely stunning country.

More to follow!
