Yes, we do get snow in Queensland, sometimes. I took this between the towns of Stanthorpe and Wallangara, about a two hour drive south of where we live. A cold blast came up from Antarctica in mid July and we felt the chill.
We then drove down to Mount Mackenzie, outside Tenterfield in NSW. One has to follow the snow.
A Paper mill on the Brisbane River, taken from the cruise ship.
Leaving the Pacific Jewel at Airlie Beach, yes the weather was a little overcast at times.
I don’t normally take pictures inside men’s urinals but I couldn’t resist this one. Situated at Airlie Beach it caused a minor controversy when the pictures were installed. Guess which one I stood at.
A distinguished looking chap dressed as an Australian Army officer from WW1, taken at Grandchester. Celebrating 150 years of train travel in Queensland. I like his pipe.
I know, I put a frog up last week but this one has such a compelling stare I had to share it.
You’ll notice that this young lady is a little different from the others. She is a Red Necked wallaby and actually stayed still long enough to photograph. They’re very skittish.
We’ve had a few flocks of Ibis wandering around the paddock lately. They’ve been cleaning up the wolf spider population, every two or three steps and they stick that beak down a spider hole. They look ordinary until the sun shines on their feathers.
Nipped into Gatton today and made a quick visit to the bird sanctuary. It started to rain and I snapped this Ibis from the shelter. The rain was quite welcome.
Nothing more beautiful than a Rainbow Lorikeet, taken in the front yard.
That’s it for another week, hope you enjoy the offerings.
