AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Great photo! Heard kookaburras "laughing" on my thus far one and only visit to Australia back in the 1980s but only ever managed to see them in the far distance. So am glad I have the chance here to view them closer up. :)

My first time ever seeing a Kookaburra, though I do know the old song... Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree...

Very sweet kookaburras! I have heard of them but didn't know what they looked like.
