When the idea of this trip came up I excitedly jumped at the chance. Always desiring a new adventure, a little off the beaten track, I could hardly resist a road trip (in a van) to the Outback of NSW. The sound of no phone signal sounded like heaven as did the fact I would be sharing this trip with my friend and colleague, an Outback local and fellow photographer, Britt.
She planned our trip in a way I wouldn’t even know where to start, including all towns and villages that were a must. Our itinerary looked something like this Sydney – Trangie – Wilcannia – White Cliffs – Broken Hill – Silverton – Wilcannia – Bondi which would take us 6 days, a few sleeps in the van (a first for me) and I don’t know how many outfit changes.
It was usually a case of drive, stop, admire, shoot… non stop for 6 days. There were so many special moments, seeing the wild animals drinking from the beautiful damn on the way back from White Cliffs, the silent sunrise enjoyed at the abandoned property with the tin huts, the coconut matcha latte in Broken Hill and every single bit of our time in Silverton (separate post coming soon). I wanted to see the magical red dirt and that I did, only accompanied with so many more natural wonders.
It was a trip like I have never experienced before, exploring what felt like such foreign lands in a way I sure wasn’t used to. A trip of firsts and new memories that will stay with me forever. I can’t think Britt enough for taking me here and capturing it all so perfectly at the same time. Here is a little look into our adventure, through both of our lens’.
