Home is where the heart is

You may have guessed from my blog title that I love the Australian outback. We have some of the most beautiful scenery and places to visit in the world, often in places you would never think to look.

Take, for example, Marble Bar which has a reputation as the hottest town in Australia. During summer the temperatures get up to well over 47C and it is hot, dusty and full of flies. However, during winter it is a different story altogether. Here are a few pics from some of our visits to this beautiful area...

The Coongan River

Some of the gorgeous rock in Marble Bar pool.

I could go on all day and have thousands of photos I could show you. Suffice to say, the Pilbara will always be 'home' in my heart. 

We have also travelled around Australia by caravan. Here is just one of the many beautiful places we found on our travels...

Twin Falls, Northern Territory

The Australian outback, and particularly the Pilbara, is my Tuesday Treasure. To see what other people's Tuesday Treasures are, or to join in yourself, visit Melody at The House on the Side of the Hill.

Have a great week,
Tracy
