River Red Gum Country

Riverboat cruises

downstream

Meandering river

Sunlight streaming through pine trees

Eucalyptus gums

Koalas hugging trunks

Kangaroos hip-hoppiting

Joeys in the pouch

Colourful parakeets

perched on branches of ti-trees

Birdcalls echo through the forest

in bush country.

    • Yes, this picturesque Murray River region would be a place where nature lovers and someone like yourself would enjoy! There are so many opportunities for artists, photographers and writers to get inspired by its beauty. Who knows, you may get to visit your friend one of these days, Elizabeth. πŸ™‚ So glad you could join in on this exciting experience …! Thank you for your kind words. ❀ Much love, Iris.
