Taken with my Lumix G3.

The Royal Hotel and the General Store opened in Sofala in 1851 with the gold rush when 1000s of people set up mining operations in the area. Sofala is reported to be the oldest gold rush town in Australia and fossikers are still attracted to the area. The current population in approximately 200.

In 1974, Peter Weir filmed “THE CARS THAT ATE PARIS” in the town and in 1994 Peter Duigan filmed “SIRENS” at Sofala.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.
