Hello fellow Steemians!

Welcome to my 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Australian Monday - where the winner of the weekly round will be able to participate for the total of 200 SBD!

Today, you can participate by submitting your personal pictures from your travels to the continent of Australia. I am also adding New Zealand to the same challenge as there were some concerns from other Steemians as to which continent NZ belongs to.

See the winner of the last week´s Australian Monday @bluebottlefilms with the following entry:

It's whale season again across the south east coast of Australia. Keep an eye out for those spurts, especially around dawn. The low position of the sun makes the spurts glimmer on the surface during this time, making them much easier to see.

Your entries need to be submitted by 8 AM Central European Time in order to be considered for the challenge with a description of approximately 30 to 50 words. Only use of personal images will be accepted and only one picture can be submitted for a daily photo challenge. Ten winning photos will receive a bigger upvote from me and ten runners-up will get a smaller one.

Chosen from the ten winning entries, the absolute winner of the day will receive extended publicity in my post tomorrow morning. I will also visit his/her blog to upvote one of the most recent posts. The winning picture of the daily challenge will then automatically enter other rounds with the absolute winner gaining approximately 200 SBD in total.

Please see the winner of Asian Sunday and give him your support if you like his image to be the one winning the weekly price and entering the other stages of the 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge. You can vote for him by upvoting his winner announcement post below:

@rinawonderlands Asian Sunday entry:

This is my entry for today contest :) I just went here last week, and it's so beautiful. If you ever want to visit a rainbow mountain in Asia, you should check this one. This rainbow mountains are part of the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in China. Layers of different colored sandstone and minerals were pressed together over 24 million years and then buckled up by tectonic plates. It's similar like Vinicunca mountain, in Peru, both has different layers of sandstone colors.

Lake Wanaka

When we visited Lake Wanaka the weather wasn't so good and we were pretty tired from the previous days. Just walked along the shore line and watched the small sailing boats going left and right in front of the snow-covered mountain peaks. Must be a perfect place for a summer vacation:)

Looking back at all these pictures puts me in such a happy place! Wanaka is just a less populated Queenstown to me! I loved it! Nice shot :)

·

Great entry as always. Thank you so much.

The Huka Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in NZ where Lake Taupo, the largest lake in New Zealand drains into Waikato River, the largest river in New Zealand. After a night of downpour, the volume of water in the waterfall is so strong that it allowed a picture like this to be taken. The rumbling sound that the shear force of the water is just exceptional.

I remembered this view :) Huka falls is amazing

Thank you so much for your participation. Tomas

This picture is quite special to me. I took it when @kryptocek and I went for a little winter hike at Lake Marian in Southland, New Zealand. We lived and worked in Milford Sound for 4 months and for the longest time we wanted to do this hike - but never got to because we lost our car in an accident and it was 40 minutes drive away. So one day we hitch hiked after work, did the hike, and hitch hiked back (right before it got dark and cars would stop coming). It was so worth it. I mean, look at this view :-)

·

It's such an amazing picture. Congrats!!!

·
·

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it :-)

·

Dang that looks like something from Game of Thrones. Nice work Jo.

Thank you! It looks quiet and peaceful there, but we actually heard an avalanche as soon as we got there :o

If you ever been to southwest of Wanaka, you might have seen this controversial" Cardrona Bra Fence". It's located in Central Otago, New Zealand, next to Cardrona Distillery. It started between Christmas 1998 and New Year 1999, with four bras attached to the wire fence alongside the road. The real purpose is unknown, but in 2015 the fence got rebranded to "Bradrona" and people can leave donations for breast cancer charity in a box at the site. I think those fence has turned into a good cause now, so if you pass the fence in the future, dont forget to stop and leave some donations ;)

·

I remember this place. I always thought it was quite funny. And it's for a good cause :-)

Haha, at first I was like is this what I think it is:)

And it is what you think it is 😄

State Library of Victoria in Melbourne

The state library of Victoria is one of the best places in Melbourne to relax and enjoy the sun. The building is quite impressive since it was financed by taxes generated during the gold rush in the 19th century.

Freycinet-Nationalpark on Tasmania

This Peninsula lays on the eastside of Tasmania and was one of my favorite Nationalparks. The image shows the beautiful Wineglass Bay which counts as one of the worlds top ten beaches.

Purakanui Bay, New Zealand

There is so much beauty in New Zealand you don't have to work too hard to access otherworldly beauty. Many of the most stunning sights are accessible without fancy accommodations or expensive tours. Just throw some sleeping bags in back of the car, find a nice spot, and lean back and enjoy the view. Waking up with the sunrise at Purakanui Bay on the South Island of New Zealand.

What a stunning place to camp:)

Perth, WA, Australia. The city of sunsets. The place where everyone wants to live close to the beach. This place is called the "blue boat shed" pretty close to the city center. A little blue house, that is hunted by my photographers during morning hours, and sunset-times. I got it to myself. Lucky day I guess. I put the camera on timer so I had to run to get into the picture. Almost slipped and ended up in the river. Fun times^^

"The Green Dragon Inn"
The iconic pub from the Lord of the rings series, found deep down in New Zealand, you can enjoy a drink from the expected to be found (Cider, ale and ginger beer). Perfect to chill and sit in the nice weather after a day of traveling, the ambience makes you feel like you are expecting a hobbit to walk past at any moment. An absolute must see for any LOTR fan!
