A Rainbow of Aussie Adventure!

Adventure is a Rainbow … Adventure is Australia!
Adventure is a Rainbow.
Adventure is taking a twenty thousand kilometre road trip along red Red RED Outback roads to criss cross the biggest island on earth. It’s gazing towards Antarctica atop ORANGE cliffs on the southern edge of the last great landmass before the bottom of the world. Adventure is finding danger on a YELLOWsign warning of new and unexpected hazards in a tropical wonderland. Adventure is a crocodile shattering the shimmering GREEN of the reflections of lush green vegetation along a rainforest river’s wild banks. It’s looking up at the layered mountain range piled with shade upon shade of endless blue Blue BLUE towering high on the horizon and knowing what the view’s like from up top looking down. Adventure’s in the depths of INDIGO rolling through a pile of clouds before a storm front blows in to clear the air. And adventure is the shocking VIOLET reflections of a perfect sunset over a little lake in the middle of nowhere while another day in paradise sinks into oblivion. And it’s knowing that you get to do it all again tomorrow.
Adventure. A kaleidoscope of colour flashing from the beguiling beyond, an explosion of experiences shot through a magic carpet of memories.
Adventure is Australia.

What does ‘Adventure’ mean to me? This is my answer and also my entry in the Southern Cross Travel Insurance competition.

I’d LOVE to see how Journey Jottings, PreTraveller, Rocky Travel and Go Camping define ‘Adventure’ in words and pictures, but ANYONE can enter – just go HEREfor details of the competition!

But hurry! It closes 30 November 2013!

  3. well as always, I think your answer is tops. It’s creative and you’ve given it a lot of thought. I just think you got lucky finding a compeition that wasn’t ’25 words or less’. Hope you win a great travel insurance package Red!

  4. What a most clever post Red, presenting a rainbow of Aussie Adventure. I cannot think of anyone but you to come up with this lovely idea. Have a wonderful day kiddo 🙂

  5. Yes, the collage makes for an excellent banner. Why don’t we see more such creative approaches and less of the where the bloody hell are you rot? You’re hired, Red.

  6. Fantastik! This would definitely entice our far-away earthlings to visit this land of many colours.
    I really hope you win Red …. you deserve it.
