Maleny and Baroon Lake, Queensland.

Maleny is a quaint little town up the hill from the Sunshine Coast.  We spent a few hours walking the footpath, just up and down the street.  Lots of people about, many dinning at the table and chairs on the side of the foothpath.  If one happens to turn the wrong way could end up on a table in some areas.  Not wrapped in this type of dinning but of course many people are.

10 km's from Maleny is Baroon Lake which we visited.
Via Wikipedia - The Baroon Pocket Dam is an rock and earth-fill embankment dam with an un-gated spillway across the Obi Obi Creek, which is located in the South East region of Queensland, Australia. The main purpose of the dam is for potable water supply.

For me I have done the unthinkable :) showing two photos, my husband and myself at Baroon Lake.

Part of Baroon Lake.  It wasn't very pretty due to the water quality.  Apparently water skiing and other water sports are sometimes permitted, but due to water quality these activities has been suspended until further notice.

  1. Well, aren't you just a lovely couple?! Enjoyed the pictures. Looks like many of the merchants have their wares out on the sidewalk.

    1. It's putrid actually, really green at the waters edge plus the level is rather low.

  4. You've certainly not stuck to the big towns and main roads. It has been good to see the less usual parts of the large state.

    PS Gattina will love your pants.
