Yes... 1700 kms is a very long way... it's about how far you travel in an airplane in 2 hours... it's about the distance I drove a few months ago in 2 days. Let's just say it was a little boring after the first 5 hours of bushland... and then a small town and then another 5 hours of bush. hehehe. Don't ya love Australia? So here's a couple of trees I saw along the way. Don't worry, Adrian was driving when I took these - not me. Not bad for cruising along a pretty crappy highway at 120km/h hey.
