Having recently relocated, this was my first real adventure out exploring the area for images; this is a 37-image (four rows) aerial panoramic stitch of Lake Kurwongbah, in Petrie/Kallangur, just a little north of Brisbane.

A quick (2 nights) visit to Fraser Island, Queensland.

“Fraser” is the largest sand island in the world, is fascinating in its diversity, and absolutely stunning. I recently spent two nights on family vacation on the splendid Fraser Island, Queensland. As it was a family holiday, these were opportunistic photos and as such do not represent the vast diversity of habitats and scenery.

This is Lake McKenzie – a beautiful spot to have a freshwater swim.
