171. A review in photos…

While the mood and the free time was upon me I thought I would provide some photo’s which did not make it into the weekly posts since we left home.

Do not forgot you can see a larger version of each photo simply by clicking on it.

Here they are in no particular order.

Painted sign of the Glasshouse Mountains near Maleny.

Artesian Hotel Barcaldene and across the street from the Tree of Knowledge. Note our previous car, the Impreza parked outside.

Artesian Spa pool at Pilliga.

Disused open cut minesite at Lightning Ridge. This method of mining is and was an unpopular method.

Water baby Donnis in the Gwydir River near Bingarra.

Part of the Pioneer Arabians Stud at Finch Hatton where we started our mostly wet voyage.

Frank n Santa at South Burnett Wanderers Chapter meeting at Kenilworth. This turned into a wet wet wet weekend. Hmmmph. Every week has been wet. We are looking forward to some lengthy periods of sunshine in 2011.

Coffee shop at Guyra with Greg n Donnis. Coffee Shop? It was also a craft store, toy store, hobby shop, outlet for craft cottage goods, sports store and in a a back room over half a million dollars of specialist cycles.

High in the hills above Tenterfield. The area is well known for the zillions of rocks spread over a huge area.

Some of the houses and farmlets in the Cooran and Traveston area are substantial and epensive.

Misty damp morning at Cooyar.

The nearest neighbour at Traveston. It is across the valley and this photo was taken in the afternoon after a day of heavy rain and suddenly the sun came out.

The old disused bridge over the swollen Moonie River at Nindigully. Ther river was in flood then and has been in floods twice as bad, twice since the photo was taken.

The original Tenterfierld Railway Station. It is so sad to see so many towns which are no longer serviced by rail. In most cases the local community has put the railway infrastructure to good use.

Another view of WWWGO and a Qantas plane at the Qantas Aviation Museum. This museum is at Longreach and was the western most point of our travels so far.

The historical Surat Post Office with a stone marker outside to honour the very last voyage by a Cobb and Co coach.

This looks like an outback dunny but is really a phone booth at the back o Bourke.

The storm is coming over Mt.Cooran towards Traveston.

Theresa Creek Dam during a flood. It has flooded a few times since.

After the flood on the Ward River near Charleville.

Lagoon (in the rain) at Buderim Ginger Factory located at Yandina.
