A late afternoon quick trip to Canunda National Park yesterday looking for animal tracks and came across this piece of driftwood sitting on the side of a dune some 500 metres from the beach.

Canunda National park stretches along the coast in the South East of South Australia and is a photographers paradise, with much untouched. The area where this image was taken in called Oil Rig square, an area accessed from Millicent where they once drilled for oil…

Had to laugh though, walked back over a kilometer from the ocean into the middle of nowhere, no human tracks or signs found and there in the middle of some animal tracks was a tennis ball. Weathered but still good for my dog!!

    Always love your accompanying stories. Almost as much as your photos. This looks like desert. How did this wonderful piece of wood get there?

    Great angle of view, never heard of this spot, great to go to those less popular spots though huh.

    Thanks for the comment. This place is about 4 hrs South of Adelaide and about 50’s ks before Mt gambier. If your ever down this way give me a yell and I’ll get you out there.
