Kanyaka Homestead to Wilpena

30 Oct

Have been experimenting with my Dash cam and the films from our Outback trip, the films are in short sequences and its hard to know exactly if we are going or coming, unless I catch a landmark.

I was hoping to show points of interest over an above the endless roads, I have found a few which I will share with you.

I did film a little of the old stone homestead, however in this clip, its filmed as we were leaving it to head to Wilpena Pound, you do get a short glimpse of some of the old buildings.

I will endeavour to find more interesting short video clips to share.

Again working with You tube I was able to add music, a sad selection they have and its purely good luck if it compliments the video clip, in this case I think it does.

So after the Kanyaka homestead shots, you can relax and spend the next two minutes in the passenger seat with me, and sit back and relax to the music as we wend our way to Wilpena Pound.

    Love the views as you drove into Kanyaka.. It gives a perspective of the towns former lay out.. It would no doubt have been busy in its hay-day.. Nice to see some greenery too along your journey Ian.. 🙂

      Kanyaka was a beautiful old homestead,that gave me a very good insight, into our early pioneering days in Australia.
      The changing scenery, going from stony dry earth to a veritable forest of green, this is due to the geological variables in the locale, that have different sources of water.
      Regards Sue

      Hi Sheila, those old stone buildings told a story, and I could sense the past when walking through them.
      A harsh pioneering past, but one that helped shape the opening of this great part of Australia.

    After all those wide-open spaces of Australia – you would hate all the traffic we have here!!!

      We are only an hour or so away from wide open spaces here mate.
      More than three passing cars on the road in an hour, I would want to know where the party is, and why wasn’t I invited.

    Hi Ian! 🙂

    It is ironic to think that these basic stone-built structures would outlast our steel and concrete cities if humanity were to vanish of the face of the Earth!!! 🙂

    Thanks for the movie – have you considered importing MP3 files into your PC, that’s how I add music to my movies! 🙂

    God Bless!

      Hi Prenin,I have a lot of imported MP3 files mate, its just that I have to use youtube for the videos, and they dont allow you a choice from your own library, someone gave me the idea about adding the music to the video, before uplifting to youtube.
      Checking that out at the moment.
