North West Bend, Murray River, SA:
Having been born on the Murray, I have an affinity with this grand old Australian waterway. So it was with great excitement that I explored the South Australian section of the river and found Nor’ West Bend Station, near Morgan. Established in 1850, this privately owned property is the oldest South Australian settlement outside of Adelaide. When the station owners heard of my history and my love for the river, they were gracious enough to show me around their property. This beautiful rotunda they built down on the banks of the Murray is the perfect place to sit and watch as life on the river passes by. Off to the right you can see their paddle steamer; although small in comparison to some of the early river vessels, it helps us connect with the beauty and romance of a bygone era
Australian born photographer Ken Duncan (OAM) captures the rich ochre reds of the outback, the turquoise blue of the sea and shadowed greens of the rainforest.
In this exciting range of high quality Ken Duncan Jigsaw Puzzles, we give you the opportunity to enjoy the splendour and the diverse character of Australia – from the cities to the wilderness.
Ken says “To really know a region you have to spend time absorbing its mood until you begin to relate to its mysterious and ancient rhythms”, says Ken. “I often have to return to a location again and again until I’ve captured the true spirit of the place. In that time spent waiting for the right moment, I have the opportunity to truly connect with the land. It’s amazing what you can learn about a place by just sitting in silence there.”
