Did you know there are four places in Australia where three states meet?
The most well known corner of the Australian outback is Cameron Corner, where the states of New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland meet.
Haddon Corner is not far from Birdsville and finally there’s Poepell Corner, where Queensland meets South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Okay, geography lesson over.
On our recent road trip we traveled over 9000kms and crossed over five state borders, however we didn’t turn any of these corners.
It just goes to show how vast Australia is.
There was a lot of straight driving and the occasional corner.
Like the one onto the Plenty Highway, one of many highlights, heading across the red dirt track into Outback Queensland.
It’s called the Outback Way for good reason and is part of Australia’s longest shortcut.
There were few corners on this route, it was straight, vast and unending nothingness. I loved it.
But Australia has a lot more than just lonely stretches of roads.
Drive long enough and you’ll reach some spectacular places.
We’ve had loads of adventures over the years, some of them way off the beaten track, many close to home.
We’ve explored the lone stretches of the Eyre Peninsula, where curved beaches adorned glittering waters, and we’ve ventured into quirky art galleries and red earthed corners of outback Silverton.
We’ve walked to what seemed like the corners of the earth on top of Mount Buffalo and explored National Parks near and far.
With such a diversity of landscapes we’ll be traveling for a long time. There’s still so much we haven’t seen.
Every state is special and unique but Victoria would have to be the most diverse. I am biased though!
There’s always something amazing around the corner, but perhaps you could say that anywhere. You just have to keep your eyes open.
Like the view over my back garden after a sun shower. This is my special corner, where I’m often inspired to write and play my guitar.
Sometimes the best place to be is right where we are, in our own happy place.
We’ve all got one. It might be the sanctuary of our garden, the creative hub of our favorite writing spot, where the sun hits our back and makes us believe anything is possible, or that special café down the road where we feel so at home.
Where ever it might be, enjoy it and make the most of every day.
I love Australia but since I’ve been blogging my world has expanded tenfold.
I’m so grateful to know so many of you from all corners of the world.
“Remake the world, a little at a time, each in your own corner of the world.” –
Wishing you peace, light and love, from my corner of the world to yours, as we all continue the journey.
