Australia has always made a tough and rugged impression on me. The world’s largest island is a continent full of contrasts. The vast landscapes and long distances are in stark contrast to those of the Netherlands or Europe. The land of Skippy, the Flying Doctors and Crocodile Dundy is fascinating because of its diversity of nature, climate and history. I visit the cities of Sydney, Adelaide and Darwin, the Outback in the south and the Wetlands in the north.
