As regular readers will know, on Fridays I like to showcase a video from somewhere in Australia. I have to say, these are my favourite posts of the week, because I often get to see something or somewhere that I otherwise would not have seen.
For example, my last video post was called Fernvale and Chinchilla, Two Remote Queensland Towns and although I have been to Fernvale, I’ve never been to Chinchilla. So, not only did I get to see that town for the first time, I also got to see two extreme weather events that took place in Queensland during that week.
As another example, I’ve not yet seen a huge wild lizard here in Australia, but I did get to see one when I wrote my post The Perentie: Largest Monitor Lizard in Australia.
I’ve also never been to the Hamersley Range and Karijini National Park areas. Like the two towns mentioned earlier, this is also quite remote, except this place is a fair distance from my house. Over 5000 km to be precise, but apparently I can do it in about 54 hours by car when there is no traffic.
And with even bigger thanks to Dan Proud and this incredible piece of film, we can check out this remote area together. My thanks also go to reader Damian Todres who brought this video to my attention. This is six hours of video footage edited down into just four minutes; sit back and enjoy ‘HAMERSLEY: a pilbara aerial film’.
This video is best watched in full screen mode, simply click on the square/pointy arrows icon in the bottom right corner to do that…
