Yanerbie Sandhills

South of Streaky Bay on Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, are the Yanerbie Sandhills. I was hoping for a chance to find sandhills on this trip, and these were the most accessible for me without an off-road vehicle.  Just my own two legs got me to these dunes.  Definitely a place I’d like to return to again – with charged batteries!  Opportunities to recharge my camera batteries can be tricky at times, and as I took these images early in the morning, I needed to save my next battery for the rest of the day. However, perhaps it was good that I ran out of battery power – otherwise I many have stayed out in the sandhills long after I should have left, such is the appeal they have for me.

Travels across Eyre

I’ve just returned from 6 days travel across Eyre Peninsula,  South Australia, and it’s going to take me ages to go through the hundreds of photos I took of this diverse region!  However, here’s a few links for you to look at, to whet your appetite.

Eyre Peninsula was named after Edward John Eyre, an early English explorer of Australia.  In my travels I came across some places he’d visited, and I really liked the sculptural pieces at Kimba, particularly because it recognised his Aboriginal companion Wylie.

More on this interesting man Here, and Here, and Here, and Here.

Eyre Peninsula is a large area, and in just a few days I could only visit a small portion of it.  My last trip over there was in the mid 80’s, and was mostly on the lower section, so this time I kept mainly to the upper region, and the beginning of the West Coast.  I found some places I’d enjoy to visit again, for a longer time, and some places I would bypass…..

Venus Bay I adored!

Fred would be most happy to visit the beaches again and again and again!

As for the cats, they enjoyed taking some early morning walks with Fred 🙂
