Pin It Weekly #105

Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia by Scott Sporleder. The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest organically formed structure.

I've developed a few cyber friendships with quilters in Australia. Apparently quilting has really taken there and blogging is part of the deal.  I thought I'd honor them this week with a few pins of places, people and things from Down Under.  Enjoy!

Uluru, is magical, awe inspiring and sensational to climb.  My son and I climbed the 9kms together in 2011. Very memorable holiday and a "wow" moment in my life!

5. The wildlife in the outback was definitely wild. We saw koalas, wallabies, and a lot of snakes. The coolest thing we saw were herds of kangaroos. Our guide told us that they were like deer in the outback; always around, but always keeping their distance.

DISCLAIMER: Although these beautiful pictures all say they were taken in Australia, there's no way I can guarantee that.  I simply searched Australia (plus --outback, --cities, --animals) on Pinterest to find them, but they may be labeled incorrectly.  In that case I apologize.

Kind regards to my Aussie friends!  Thanks for visiting so often.

Hi Mary. You are very safe with your selection of pics.I can recognise every one of them. The only one that could be anywhere is the last beach pic, but it does look very much like Queensland, so all good.
We are so lucky to have this amazing scenery!
I enjoyed the tour!
