My Australian Trip

In late February and early March of 2001, I had a business trip to Tasmania and since I had never been to Australia, I choose to take some vacation time and see some of the country.  After investing nearly 24 hr of flying it seemed I should take the opportunity. I flew into Melbourne and spent a few days exploring the Great Ocean Road southwest of Melbourne and visited the Camerons, friends that live in Melbourne, for the weekend.  Then I flew to my meetings in Launceston, Tasmania.  After the meetings I explored Tasmania for a few more days before flying to Cairnes, Queensland, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, visiting the reef and the rain forest.  Then  I few to Alice Springs in the Red Center (Northern Territory) and visiting Uluru (Ayer's Rock).  Finally I flew back to Melbourne and home.

Here are some highlights of my visit:
