Sweeter Banana's truck collecting banana's from plantations around the river in Carnarvon - Sue Helmot Artist

Spring is the time when nature and food production thrives in the Gascoyne.  While many crops are being harvested others are flowering and pollinating.  Seafood is caught on the moon cycle.

Twice the size of Uluru (Ayers Rock), Mount Augustus is reputedly the largest monolith in the world. After spending quite some time mixing the colours for my palette I start with […]
