Inkerman Hill, Queensland.

Inkerman Hill, a 10 minute drive south of the township of Home Hill, provides an excellent vantage point to take in the surrounding countryside. With an elevation of around 215 metres above sea level at the summit, local farms, the township of Home Hill, and some waterways around the Groper Creek area and Cape Upstart are visible.


We sat here for quite awhile taking in the view.


The view of some of the sugarcane fields.
Below one can see the Coral Sea.




Still a long way from home in winter 2016

    1. I'm used to have a good view over what is below so therefore like you would miss it.
      Or, flat as a tack!

  5. Cape Upstart! I like that. By the way, not Lightroom- Plain old PS Elements and Topaz Labs. My brain and heart see things in a cinematic fashion. I want to show what my imagination sees as much as absolute reality--- hopefully without going overboard.

    1. Lol, don't know how it got it's name of Cape Upstart can only imagine.
      Ok regarding Elements. Also have that, never seem to use it though, maybe I should.
      Your photos are always pleasing to ones eye and you never go overboard in my opinion.

  6. I wonder what that view (magnificent when taken) looks like now after "Debbie"??
    "Debbie" and the afterflow down the coast is sure causing MORE havoc.
    Lismore (NSW)......I think yesterday here in Terrigal we got our little bit of it.
    A real fierce storm in the afternoon and I was stuck in it!! Wunderbar, I think not - ha ha!

    1. Goodness only knows what that view looks like now - flatter I expect with cane all gone flat, well most of it.
      Dreadful everywhere with the rain up that way, floods galore for what I've heard.
      Maybe a bit of rain might drop on us from X-Debbie..

  7. "Great vantage point", was putting it lightly. I bet the picture doesn't match what you took in in person.

    1. In person Martin, there was more variation in the colour of the fields, it was a bit hazy as well.

    1. I became interested because we were there at that time, so I did a lot of reading about sugar cane.

  12. The images we are seeing here of Queensland is of the recent awful devastation caused by the cyclone. I am sure that much of the year it is idyllic but it seems to get slammed so frequently I am starting to seriously wonder why anyone would choose to live there.

    1. It's been a while since a cyclone came through that specific area. People that live in the large area know that cyclones come there and if they don't like that idea I guess they move. IT's also the rain that comes with the cyclone, the after rains which go further down south and inland that also causes such devastation, flooding.
      That's Australia.
      Land of flooding plains.

  13. Great view!! I love the updates you are giving of your trip.. The best part is the map, where you show the place where you exactly located now..

    1. Thanks krishna.
      I thought the map is a good idea because people know of Australia but they don't know where all the places are, so I'm pleased it helps to have a map.
