Australian Touring Routes & Experiences

The name Red Dust on Snowtm succinctly sums up the passion I have for the diverse region of the Murray-Darling Basin and adjoining areas in Australia.

From the iconic red soils of the western region of the Darling River catchment, along the Murray River, to the snow-covered Alpine Region in south east Australia. I have always held a passion for this region of Australia in terms of reportage photography, content creation, and share the experience with like-minded adventurers.

My love for exploring Australia started from a young age (in an old FB ute) exploring the central Murray River. Since then, I have travelled throughout Australia, photographingphotographing and creating content for various publishers.

Australia is an excellent place to tour, and the Murray-Darling basin always draws me back as it is in my blood. And it is that ethereal experience I have always wanted to share. From an adventure touring perspective, the Murray-Darling covers almost 14% of Australia, and around 78% of Australia's population live within 200 km of the basin. It is that close and such a vast region to explore, as it spans four eastern states of Australia (Victoria, NSW, South Australia, and Queensland).

Over the years, as a professional photographer and adventure lover, I have seen most of Australia, and the Murray-Darling Basin is the region that I connect with the most. It is an Australian region that I have toured extensively and promoted photographically and via editorial content for many of Australia's leading lifestyle magazines.

I have retraced many established and well-known touring routes throughout my travels and created a few that I thought provides an essential insight into the landscape's nature. (e.g. Watershed Loop and the Timber Cutters Run)

The following are the touring routes I am most passionate about and would like to share to enable others to experience the adventure.

I hope you enjoy these experiences!
