Lake Kurwongbah aerial panorama.

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.

Aerial views of the Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

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’).

The view from Mount Ngungun – the Glasshouse Mountains, 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.

Fire in the sky – the Glasshouse Mountains, Queensland.

Day 9-11. Makarora and Fox Glacier etc, South Island – New Zealand.

Onwards…
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.

Posting #11 of my road trip from Fremantle to Kununurra, Western Australia.

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…
