I grew up across the road from “the bush” right here in suburban Sydney and there’s a little bit of bush behind our house now, we camp in the bush, we go bushwalking in all sorts of bushland, people get lost in the bush (sometimes fatally and surprisingly close to civilization). We have bushfires, not forest fires, irrespective of what sort of landscape is being burned. We also have rainforest and heathland and deserts and scrubland and marshland…but it’s all “the bush” too.
I went through my photos on Flickr and created a set titled Australian bush but I didn’t have all that many landscape photos of my own. So I dropped in to my Mum’s place this afternoon and raided her photo albums for pictures, they’ve been uploaded to my Flickr and added to the Australian bush set too.
Here’s a few of the ones I found, click through to the set on Flickr to see more.
View from Carsons Pioneer lookout on Thunderbolt Way in north-eastern NSW
View down the gorge at Dangars Falls near Armidale in NSW
Ferntree Gully in Morton National Park a couple of hours drive south of Sydney
Mt Kootaloo on Dunk Island in the Great Barrier Reef
View south from the saddle below Porcupine Rocks in Kosciuszko National Park
And, last but not least, a little bit of the Aussie bush in my own front yard
