The second running of this cattle drive occurred 8th-14th April, 2018.
So there you go, a sample of the experience.
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.
The following is a portion of the aerial panoramic stitch above.
Hope you enjoy. Cheers
Aerial views of some of the volcanic plugs (remnants of volcanic activity that occurred 25-27 million years ago), known as the Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. Some of the mountains included in these images are Mount Beerwah, Mount Coonowrin (‘Crookneck’), Mount Ngungun, Mount Tibrogargan, and Mount Tunbubudla (‘The Twins’).
There have been some lovely pastels at dusk lately. This wetlands scene is part of Ewen Maddock Dam, located along Steve Irwin Way on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.
‘One Tree Hill’ in front of volcanic plugs (remnants of volcanic activity that occurred 25-27 million years ago) known as the Glasshouse Mountains, as seen along the Blackall Range Tourist Drive on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.
The 360 degree view afforded from the top of Mt. Ngungun is fascinating – the 2.8 km (return) hike up is well worth including in your plans.
These are some of the volcanic plugs (remnants of volcanic activity that occurred 25-27 million years ago), known as the Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. These two are, from nearest to furthest, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah, as seen from Mount Ngungun.
A fiery sunset over volcanic plugs (remnants of volcanic activity that occurred 25-27 million years ago), known as the Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. At just over an hour from Brisbane, these hills are well worth a visit.
This is a 12 image panorama stack.
Day 9-11. Makarora and Fox Glacier etc, South Island – New Zealand.
More from Otago, plus some from West Coast. As is the case with all holidays, the end comes too soon.
This last post includes images from Blue Pools on the Makarora River, the Whataroa River, Fox Glacier, and Lake Hawea (near The Neck).
Dusk settles over the Southern Alps at Makarora.
The stunning, and frigid, Blue Pools.
Happy hour 🙂
Cold beers and conversation in and alongside the Makarora River.
A Tui (Prosthemadera novaeseelandiae), in the honeyeater family, foraging on New Zealand flax (Phormium sp.).
Dawn over the Southern Alps at Fox Glacier – includes Aoraki / Mount Cook.
I hope you enjoyed this and the previous posts of my images from a fantastic holiday in New Zealand.
Near Wyndham, and still proximal to Kununurra, is a world-renowned birding area known as Marlgu Billabong – part of Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve. Dusk and dawn are the best times to visit and observe the varied avifauna, yet anytime is a good time to be outdoors 🙂
The scenery as you enter Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve…
Arriving at Marlgu Billabong…
A sampling of the abundant bird wildlife:
In addition to the wildlife, flora abounds. These water lilies were stunning at dusk…
Dusk over Marlgu Billabong.
Two quick views over nearby Wyndham, including tidal flats.
That’s it for this post; I hope you enjoyed the images.
Into the Kimberley Region…
China Wall – a quartz outcrop.

The very refreshing, and aptly named, Palm Springs.
A ‘selfie’ in Palm Springs – lovely safe place for a dip.
Mulla mulla wildflowers along Duncan Road, Halls Creek.
One of the water crossings along Duncan Road, Halls Creek.
Sawtooth Gorge is a beautiful and secluded camping/visiting area- well worth the short bumpy dirt road in.
An iconic avian species – the Wedge-tailed Eagle – perched on a termite mound outside Fitzroy Crossing.
An iconic boab tree at dusk on the Great Northern Highway – a common Kimberley vista.
