Colours of north Queensland

On a recent trip to far north Queensland, we walked on the beach near the Town of 1770…

We admired the shells at Swamp Bay near Airlie Beach…

Lily pads at Mareeba wetlands concealed a shallow depth:

Floral Sunday

Today I cycled to Roma Street Parklands – these lovely gardens were the brainchild of Colin Campbell, a much loved horticulturist who died last year, and for whom a large section full of bright blooms, sculpture, trees and water features has been named.

The water dragons were out in force, scaring the tourists. And the blue fairy wrens flitted through the shrubs. Glorious park for a rest stop.
