    Travelling through the countryside. Thank goodness for divided highways. Sure makes it safer but drivers still have to remain vigilant. There are always idiots around.

    Australian ranges always have a blue tinge about them. It is something to do with the gas the gum leaves release. There was also some bushfire smoke about in this area.

    That is an impressive rock escarpment sticking up from the trees.

    Road upgrade at Bulahdelah. This was once a notoriously dangerous stretch of the Pacific Highway but the highway, as it is now, is much safer. This upgrade will make it even better. The Pacific Highway is considered the most dangerous of Australia's main highways but work continues to make it safer despite our current state government's recalcitrance.

    For a flat continent Australia can be very hilly. Here on the east coast at least. Not so much elsewhere.

    Gosh this photo looks just like it could be on the way to Malmesbury which is just about an hour north of here. Yes I agree where are the Moo Cows :D

    Thank you, Dawn. :D There are still many more to come. :lol3:

    There isn't much farming land visible from the Pacific Highway until it travels north of Taree, which is where the images I am posting today will end. :smile:

    Some more golden wattle.

    This is a different wattle to the golden wattle & its flowers are a creamy shade. Still as generous as the golden wattle with spreading its pollen about.
