1987 – Australia – “Part 2”

Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin, Brisbane & Perth

After New Zealand I returned to Sydney but then left almost immediately for Melbourne.   I then lived and worked in Melbourne for six weeks.

From Alice Springs I continued north to Darwin and the Kakadu National Park, and then back to Sydney via Queensland, and finally by train to Perth.
