In October 2012 we embarked on a project to timelapse Australia. Nearly 5 months have gone by, with over 300,000 photos taken and 21TB of WD hard drives full.
Please visit facebook.com/timelapsetheworld to follow the journey, as there is still another month of travel to do here in Australia, before we leave for New Zealand.
To the supporters of the project I offer my sincere thanks.
In particular, I would like to thank SeaRoad Shipping for transportation to and from Tasmania. Travelling on a cargo ship was a wonderful experience.
Special thanks to the Port Arthur Historic Management Authority for its assistance.
Thanks to Bridestowe Lavender Estate for a warm welcome (twice, due to poor weather the first time!).
Thanks to Tasmazia, home to the world's largest maze & the Village of Lower Crackpot.
We stayed at many wonderful hotels and motels, all generously donated. Thank you. I urge you to support them if you travel their way. They are:
Cradle Mountain Chateau, CRADLE MOUNTAIN
Balmoral on York, LAUNCESTON
Homelea, ST HELENS
Bicheno Ocean View Retreat, BICHENO
Parsons Bay Retreat, NUBEENA
Southern Lights Hotel, HOBART
I'd also like to thank Western Digital for donating 21 TB of storage.
Special thanks to Lensbaby for some wonderful lenses, Lexar Professional for memory cards, Lowepro for an extraordinary camera bag that accommodates all my gear, Rode Microphones, Velbon and Joby
A huge thank you to my amazing assistant, Sarah.

Australian continent, separated by Bass Strait. It is 364 kilometres
long from north to south and 306 kilometres from west to east. Its
population is in excess of half a million. As you can see from the
