Kelly told the BBC: "I put it on Facebook and straight away all my friends said 'that looks like a map of Australia'".

The emergency services phone operator had travelled to the Northern Territories for a wedding but found time for a little exploring.

Her photo drew high praise on social media, with some highlighting an obvious omission.

William Lehmann said: "Tasmania absent as usual."

Elle Chicoli replied: "Mate, just go there and cut a hole in the bush."
