These jigsaw puzzles are great for viewing the Australian coast from a different perspective. The aerial photos used have been reproduced as dry brush stroke paintings, introducing a different element for enjoyment. There is Tasman Island, off the southeast coast of Tasmania, Point Nepean, on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Cape Wiles, on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula, Disaster Bay (aptly named because of shipwrecks) in New South Wales, and the Useless Loop Salt Pans in the Shark Bay area of Western AustraliaAustralia's Coast jigsaw puzzles should bring back memories for people who have travelled around Australia or live on the coast. Great for armchair travel.

Here's a Review about the jigsaw puzzles. 

"Hi Fran, I think your beautiful digital jigsaw puzzles are fabulous and easy to use. I work in community and have begun using them with a number of clients, including 1 client who has quite advanced Dementia and has never used a computer. We put the disk into his wife’s laptop and asked him to have a look. He immediately pointed to pieces and showed where they should be placed (correctly). He has a past history of years of doing jigsaw puzzles, but no longer able to manage too many pieces. This was a lovely way of being able to reconnect with his jigsaws but also an enjoyable activity to undertake together. I have shared this information and your contact details with some colleagues (who also had a bit of a play) with a very positive response. Well done." Fay, Korumburra, Victoria, Australia
