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)

Red Earths


Red earths/sands are a feature of Cranbourne Botanical Gardens to symbolise the outback, central Australia areas!
The garden specialises in native plants.
This particular area is referred to as the Red Sand Garden, a design feature of the Australian Garden opened in 2006.
More details HERE!


Some natural reds
Like sands from old surfaces
Dry beauty's presence
