What does it mean to Explore Oz?





The answer is as big as our wide brown land!









It means turning to the north and the south,













the east and the west












Seeing red brown horizons and soft green places












Between ocean shores and beaches and the dunes of the desert














There are mountains and plains,












Forests and woodlands













Trees that are huge, ancient and iconic














Oceans in all their moods, rivers dry or in flood,














Ancient Rocks that have seen it all,













Waterfalls that tumble or run horizontal












Gorges and gashes and man made canyons














There is amazing wildlife: marsupials, birds,













whales, and lizards of all sizes












There are giants of the plant world and exquisite tiny flowers












There are special places and beautifiul places













All waiting to be explored and photographed













In bygone days travel was harder












Now we have technology to help













When we ExplorOz by car, by boat,












and by plane – and most importantly by foot.













We travel in groups or go solo














And have big busy camps and small special camps












We cook up a storm and meet problems “hands on”












We have moments of relaxation and moments of delight













Eager to take new tracks, some smooth, others rough, and then some…












We discover our history, European and Aboriginal













Our wonderful scenery, the mining and musters,












Giant ships and trains












We’ve seen art ancient and modern












From sunrise to sunset and the times in between













Our sturdy old Troopy has climbed dunes and danced in flowers














He’s our Exploring Oz home.... with more adventures to come.
