SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Many people are visiting La Perouse at the weekends. La Perouse is a small island in the south of the botany bay near cape banks. I have never been on this island because its only possible to walk around in a circle. But there is a more hidden track which goes through the bush and which us much more attractive than a walk around the island.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Botany Bay is always worth a visit. I drove with a push bike from Zetland to Botany Bay with short visits at the outer runway of the Airport.
Although I have travelled a lot in Australia, I have never had the opportunity to see anything more of the Sydney area. To close this gap, I got a rental car and drove after a journey to the west the day before in direction south along the coast. The journey went through the Royal National Park, Wollongong, Port Kembla, some smaller towns and finally to Jarvis Bay.
Although I have travelled a lot in Australia, I have never had the opportunity to see anything more of the Sydney area. To close this gap, I got a rental car and drove from Sydney west through the Blue Mountains and further south and back to Sydney. Interestingly enough, this film shows the still very small bush fire in the southwest of Sydney, which later destroyed everything in the area and tortured Sydney with smoke for weeks.
This is video gives you a short impression about the current smoke and bush fire situation in Sydney/Australia. The situation gets worse and the smoke is around everywhere in Sydney. There are ash particles flying around and its impossible to do anything outside. This comes mostly from a bush fire in the west of Sydney.
Sydney is currently under thick clouds of smoke from the bush fires around. In this video I explain the current situation in Sydney.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: I had the opportunity to visit the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019. The World Solar Challenge is a car race of vehicles mainly powered by photovoltaics. The race always starts in Darwin/Australia in the Northern Territory and leads from north to south through the whole continent from Australia to Adelaide in the south. The route is about 3000 km through the harsh conditions of the continent. The teams consist mainly of students and the vehicles are built and operated by students. In this film there are some impressions of the qualifing on the Darwin race track, the scruitining and the start in the centre of Darwin. Unfortunately I was a bit late for the start and could only see the last two cars starting.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: In this video I show you a trip from the suburb Zetland to the center at the bus stop Museum and on to the Botanical Garden. After a walk through the garden I go to the Sydney Opera and on to the Circular Quay. The video was taken in October 2019 and unfortunately it was not purely sunny.
