    This is inspiring. I always forget how beautiful this country is when all I see is the city and the suburbs. Thank you.

    Wow! These are stunning! And that’s coming from an Australian! They’re so beautiful.

    yaya my home! :)

    AHHHHHHH I THINK I’M IN LOVE WITH ALL OF THESE PHOTOS! I’m also Australian and this makes me really happy to see such lovely photos, considering that most non-asutralians seem to be scared of this place ’cause of spiders and snakes and crocs and stuff. I think there needs to be more Australian environment appreciation posts on the internet… (also I really wanna know what part of Australia these were taken in because, though I hardly ever bike-ride, that sounds like such a fun way to get around)

      I want to know where this is as well! It looks like it’s near the Murray river.

      • Kimberly June 26th, 2014 5:54 PM

        Yup! It’s along the Murray River. We also were simultaneously riding past the Murray & The Goulburn river at one point.. It was so beautiful. Made me appreciate Victoria so much more than ever before!

    HOMEEEEEE : )

    what state borders did you cross, and how long did you take to do all this?

    (all six state borders and the borders of the one mainland territory would have taken quite a large amount of cycling – and you managed to look so stylish doing it)

    • Kimberly June 26th, 2014 5:56 PM

      It was along the Murray, so we crossed into Vic & NSW multiple times. That was the fun part! Being in two different states multiple times a day.
      It took around 2 weeks, with a lot of fluffing about, and a lot of relaxing days. I can’t wait to do it again :)

    aw man nice to see my country and state!! I’m guessing you passed near albury/wodonga? my cousins live near there and we go camping by the murray sometimes and it’s so nice and early winter mornings with the fog and then summer days where you practically live in the river and you’re swimming every day for several hours

  • clarekawaii June 27th, 2014 4:57 AM

    These photos make me feel this nostalgic feeling I never even had! It’s absolutely beautiful and every photo was taken beautifully. That place looks really peaceful.

    these are stunning photos! I love the peaceful calm of them. I’ve got to go to the Outback-my Australian roots are calling to me.
