Blue Mountains Bicentenary 1813-2013

The month of May 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the crossing of the Blue Mountains by the explorers Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson.
The crossing commenced forty five kilometres away at the Nepean River and followed the mountain ridge line for seventy five kilometres.
Today, descendants of the three explorers flew over the mountains in Australia's largest ever civilian flyover.

As you can see we've been blessed with glorious weather.


  1. Fabulous photos, I'm sure the 4th one could be a magazine cover!

    1. Thanks Kath. 4th one was against common photographing practices...camera straight into the sun at the right moment and I love the effect.

  2. A great post Sweet Pea!
    We were looking out for the Roulettes in Bx yesterday but didn't hear or see them.. they may have gone around us.
    A great time of celebration~
    Your photos are magnificent :)

    1. Thanks Robyn. I think most of the planes took off from Richmond but rumour has it they were flying quite high except over selected viewing points. Too many regulations to be observed these days.
