A coastal hot-spot

At the edge of the Mount William National Park lies a magnificent stretch of coastline known as the Bay of Fires.  It’s widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Australia and we discover its reputation is well deserved.

Julie took these photos at Binalong Bay, which is just one of many superb spots on the Bay of Fires

The red colouration of some of the rocks is not a mineral deposit, but rather a lichen.  Its presence shows that local environment is unpolluted:

We were lucky to enjoy Binalong Bay in glorious weather, when the bright sunshine and clear blue sky showed off the scenery at its best:

"Platypus" is a red herring: I'm English, although my blogging career began in my record of a 2016 road trip to Tasmania. Other blogs followed covering road trips in Newfoundland (2017), the Yellowstone area of the USA (2018) and New Zealand (2019). My current project is "Now I'm 64" , a weekly blog covering UK travel and wildlife, along with bits of history, social commentary and moans about the injustice of aging. I can guarantee a few laughs, and also the occasional rant. Some of it's even quite well written!
