The GREAT OutBack of Australia

Unless you have travelled to the Australian Outback, you have no idea of its magnitude or magnificence. Australia is the same size as the USA, yet not as populated. The orange brown interior shown on this map, is all Outback.

When hubby Ray and I returned from the U.S. to reside in tropical Queensland, the first thing Ray wished to do was travel around and see more of the country.
An animal and bird lover he ran after everything he saw.

The Emu, flightless large bird, who will chase you in return.

He had no idea of the expanse of our interior. Neither was he aware of it's dangers. Needless to say at times I was terrified when he disappeared off to explore alone.

Some of our highlights were:
Those enormous trucks called ROADTRAINS.

The colourful landscape.
                                  Unique rock formations.
                            Wild animal herds everywhere.
                                   Lonely homesteads.
I love the solitude, nature, peace, and especially the stars at night.

 Australia – Crystal Mary Lindsey, an experienced and non-traditionally adventurous romance author dedicated to incorporating the elusive romanticism and unchartered elements of Australia into her telling novels, this week officially released her latest work on for all interested readers.
 Titled, Discovering Treasure, a Christian Romance novel set in Europe and Australia, Lindsey’s book takes the reader on a soul-stirring, entertaining adventure, while following the life of Treasure Gilroy, a famous model living in the heart of Paris.
 “This book starts off in Paris, the city of romance, in 1925,” said Lindsey. “Treasure is a dazzling model, splitting her time between London, New York, Paris, and Milan. She inexplicably finds herself drawn to her family’s home and grandmother’s estate in New South Wales, outback Australia, which kick-starts the whole eye-opening and enticing adventure.”
Treasure travels with her best friend, Ella, to workout the details of her deceased grandmother’s estate. While there, Treasure finds herself intrigued and instantly obsessed with the estate lawyer, Connor Latham, a returned World War 1 fight pilot. Passions ignite, family secrets are revealed, and Treasure moves closer towards meeting our Lord Saviour.
 “This isn’t a traditional Christian love story,” said Lindsey. “Treasure is brought up with no exposure or understanding of Jesus – so her discovery of His love and presence in the world today is a slow and profound one. Will she get the love of her life, learn of God’s eternal love, and solve her family’s buried history? You’ll have to find out by Discovering Treasure.”

Discovering Treasure is Book #1 of the Vision Valley series by Lindsey. It is available for Kindle

This unique SERBIAN church is in the desert Outback town of Coober Pedy in South Australia. Temperatures reach beyond 40 degrees Celsius.

For that reason the coolest place is beneath the ground. 

This beautiful church was created for worship by miners who
came to work and live in the town.

Inside there's a church hall, parish house and even a school. 

The stained glass internal windows are lit up using electric lights to bring their glorious effect.

Even while searching for opals and wealth, God is not forgotten

I love the Outback - so I share about it in my books.

The Australian Outback is HUGE and truly AMAZING.

You drive for hundreds of miles without seeing a soul.

Australia is the same size as the United States, yet the

interior is arid so people live mainly around the perimeter.

There are 10,685 BEACHES in Australia.

It's been a few years since Ray and I travelled Outback,

yet seeing the photos brings it all back.

Can you imagine having to STOP and WAIT on a highway for

a cattle drive to pass.

Herds of WILD Camels, Goats, Kangaroos and Emus PLUS

thousands of different types of Parrots watching your every


This is why I include the amazing OUTBACK in my

ROMANCE stories.
