Australian countryside (or bush)

Much of the good stuff in my visit to Australia was when I got out into the “bush” (or “countryside”) – I am still not certain if the words are synonymous.

I know that the “bush” and the “outback” are not the same.

Australia is indeed a very flat Continent.  You will see this in the photo’s I took from a plane, en route from Adelaide to Melbourne. 

There are also quite delightful “countryside” areas near Adelaide (the Adelaide Hills); and near Melbourne in the Ballaratt/Creswick/Doylesford areas. These places are neither Cities, nor Outback.

Here are my pics.  I’ll end the Australia series tomorrow with some photo’s from the gorgeous Blue Mountains near Sydney.
