Unknown 'things'

Different 'things' in Cardwell, Q'land what we saw this winter.


The big crab at Cardwell, Q'land.


Don't know what these represent, there was no sign to say.


These are 'what' I don't know, they over look the sea and part of Hinchinbrook Island.



The Telegraph and Post Office building was built in 1870.  It operated as a Post Office until 1982 and the building is a Heritage Centre these days.

  2. The first looks delicious. The second looks like some sort of ancient ritual figures. The third looks like a set of toothpicks.

  4. Yeah many times while traveling we have seen things that look good we take a photo of them but why they are there and what the represent is anyone's idea as there are no signs which can be somewhat annoying at times

    1. Mostly there are signs, but not that time Jo-Anne, and it is annoying.

  5. Somehow it's the bird sitting on the giant crab that caught my attention. Love it!

  6. Very different things. Intriguing things.
    When Lee comes by I am guessing that she will know (or find out) what they are.

  9. Very curious sculptures. The first appear to have an Aboriginal connection. Goodness what the second lot are supposed to be, but I quite like them.

    1. They are different and would represent something aboriginal I expect.

    1. Oh yes, and another big thing to come :) You would know what that is for sure.

  11. I like those pieces, the figurines especially, they could be Aboriginal but they're not done in dot painting style so maybe they aren't. The sharpened sticks is an unusual sight.

    1. I suppose they are Aboriginal but certainly no dots...those sharp sticks might have something to do with shadows, just a guess.

  12. I love the crab, but, it would be better in the sea. Those statues are somewhere else Margaret.

  13. What a wonderful red crab - the first thing that came to mind when I saw the three 'lollipop' figures was the colouring and patterning which reminded me of Aboriginal art.

    1. They do look a type of Aboriginal art, however their art always has dots, never seen their art without dots...they will have to keep us guessing.

  14. I've seen Jalapeno on a Stick...now I've seen sticks on a stick

  15. Lovely sculptures. It's always nice to see something like these in a trip.

    1. Yes it is good to see something different, if only knew what they were.

  16. They are interesting, the images and especially, the of the giant crab.

  17. Ha ha - amusing figures.
    Only the crab makes any sense.
    The ginger bread like thingies - look like small Canadian Totem poles.
    As for the sticks, maybe someone has a sense of glorious humour, like
    "OK come and sit on this!!!"
    I sure can think of some politicans, and now with my move some "unbelievably
    rude and unhelpful bureaucrats" who I would love to jam down on those pointy
    poles!
    Great report.
    Someone in Cardwell I think is making few SHARP POINTS!

    1. Yes the crab makes a lot of sense compared to the other two 'things' Colin.

  21. Crab is nice, but we should not catch a crab.The other two are design displays.Beautiful clicks.

  22. The motel I managed was diagonally across the highway from "Muddies Restaurant"...as it was then known....with the large mud crab outside tempting people to stop in.

    It was a good restaurant, too...top food. I'd sometimes sneak across at night...and sit on the verandah to have a couple of drinks with the owners/chef. I could see my reception office and entrance to the motel from there, so it took me no time if anyone pulled into the property to book into the motel!!! :)

    1. Taking a second look at your crab photo...it looks like the crab is now situated at a different spot. The Seaview Cafe, as I knew it when I lived in Cardwell and also when I managed the resort on the island, was further down in the middle of Cardwell. It used to be where the buses pulled in. Perhaps the layout etc., has all changed since Yasi. And perhaps Muddies, as it was and where it was situated is no longer.

    2. Lee, from memory that crab was in a different place when we visited Cardwell last time some years ago now.
      I remember from our trip last time that a Tasmanian man owned the Newsagency!
