Pictures Of Port Albert

Port Albert sits on the east coast of Australia between Yarram and Port Welshpool and is at the southern end of the beautiful ninety mile beach.

There are quite a lot of things to do around Port Albert and visiting the Maritime Museum is always a good place to start.

Established in 1841, Port Albert also became one of the busiest after the discovery of gold in the 1850’s. This popular town attracted prospectors, machinery and supplies into its port and according to local records, over a thousand ounces of gold was shipped out each week.

Pictures on this page include Port Albert jetty, the Maritime Museum Sign, the local Port Albert pub, seagulls on the pier, the beach, the general store and cafe.

You can see the entire gallery of pictures of Port Albert and the surrounding area here.

Mouth Of The Powlett River

Powlett River would have to be one of the shortest rivers in Victoria – but don’t let its length fool you – it is really quite beautiful.

I really don’t know much about its history, but apparently it is near this spot that the new desalination plant (at Wonthaggi) has been built.

Photos taken at Powlett River can be seen on the NEW lifegames Photography website where you can use these pictures FREE on your own website or even for advertising…or just drop in to the picnic area and see the river for yourself. You can get there from the Bass Highway between Wonthaggi and Kilcunda.

San Remo Jetty

Luck allowed me to get this great tourist photo under the San Remo Jetty sign…with a happy family frolicking on the beach in the background.

On the way to Phillip Island, the pretty jetty area here can be viewed from the bridge without even stepping out of the car.

Lang Lang Rodeo 2009 Pictures

rodeo riding

My first visit to the Lang Lang rodeo was relaxing and enjoyable and netted me an exciting gallery of rodeo photographs as a bonus.

Located just off the South Gippsland Highway, the crowd in excess of 3000 spent a glorious day watching an action-packed list of events from bull riding, buck jumping, bareback riding, calf roping, barrel racing and dog jumping with market stalls and a ute rally to top things off.

There’s no doubt I’ll be back again next year.

Blackened Tree Trunks After The Wilsons Prom Bush Fires

This Walking Tracks At Wilsons Promontory National Park is part of what is left of the Lilly Pilly Gully Nature Walk.

Fortunately, the beautiful trees and ferns that make up the Lilly Pilly Gully itself, appear to have been saved from devastation.

You can see more pictures taken After The Wilsons Prom Bush Fires in the Landscapes, Bush Fires And Scenery Gallery.
