Welcome to my Blog. I have experienced a life-long passion for the natural history of Australia and have been further blessed by sharing its wonders through visual and written expressions in a multitude of forms for over five decades. My objectives have remained to inspire in others the joy afforded through nature connection and what that can mean for our spiritual, mental and physical wellbeing. As you browse, please feel free to start a conversation. – Steve Parish
