The Breakaways

We had heard that the Breakaways are magnificent, and we were not disappointed.  The tour we took was wonderful as was George, our tour guide.  He took us to see all the features of the of the region and shared the history and a story or two about each and every site.  Our tour was supposed to be 2 1/2 hours and was more like 4.  We had a fantastic time.

As we watched the colours changed with the movement of the sun and the angle we were viewing from.  It was awe inspiring and very difficult to pick just a few photos to share of the 150 we took!

This area was once a rain forest, and then the bottom of a vast inland sea (millions of years ago).  In more recent times it was the set of various movies including "Pitch Black", "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" and "Mad Max".

The whole area seemed almost extra terrestrial and the expanse was to the horizon and beyond.
