Travel Pictures - AUSTRALIA - 1992

All images Ron Miller

     Perhaps no country in the world is more similar to the United States than Australia. The two nations share nearly identical histories, they both are blessed with an abundance of land, and they each have a lifestyle based around the automobile. However, the Australians, unlike the British from whom most Australians descend, are very open and straightforward - refreshingly so. My travels were limited to two weeks and I ventured inland from Sydney across the interior highlands to the outback at Bourke before returning to the Gold Coast at Brisbane. Australia is delightful - and I must return.
