THE ROAD AWAITS

2022

If you haven’t seen the desert,

Or gazed across the Bight.

Or listened to the silence,

Of the black Australia night…


This book is a collection of poems, and stories explaining the context of the poems and includes many beautiful photographs of Australia. The poems relate to traveling, as a family, in our little bus across Australia, in the days before the highway was a sealed across the Nullarbor Plains. We travelled Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia to Western Australia. The book retells the personal hardships that led to a life (for some time) on the road, and depicts the natural wonders seen along the way.
