From the bush to the colorful currency of Australia
Here is a view of Belingen Camp with the gum trees behind where the Bell Birds chirped all day with an occasional whip bird and the laughing Kookaburra! Yes, here is the bush of New South Wales.
Here is the colorful currency that I have been using over the past weeks during my stay in Australia. The notes, except for the 5, have both a woman on one side and a man on the other. They also have a polymer window in each denomination. Coins have on the back One Dollar, Kangaroo, Two Dollar, Aboriginal with southern cross stars, 10 cent lyrebird, 20 cent platypus, and 50 cent national crest as well as a variety of comemeratives.
