Welcome to XTALENT

This site is a launchpad for a number of diverse passions I now pursue in my spare time. Have a quick look around at what there is on offer.


Virtual Walkaboutsvirtually go on nature walks to beautiful natural places.
Half the fun of going somewhere is the actual journey involved in getting there!
Being disabled or infirm should not preclude you from enjoying some of Australia’s most beautiful nature walks.
A unique experience; no effort required and no other people on the track to spoil the experience. Better still exercise as best you can using the virtual track before you as motivation.
The 2006 Walkabout Series have unique seismic didjeridu soundtracks performed by Tjupurru.

I have since developed Six Virtual Electron Microscopy Explorations to allow people to go on similar fantastic voyages of discovery using their favourite web browser.
I hope you enjoy and discover much!
