Flagstaff Hill, Bowen.

Whist visiting Bowen in Queensland we vetured up to Flagstaff Hill for the view!
The first photo is of the beach where horses are taken to swim.




The above is a view of some of the Whitsunday group of Islands in the distance.


These two photos are of Bowen taken from Flagstaff Hill.




There in the distance is a port that takes coal to wherever.

  4. Horse swimming would be much more pleasurable for horses in the warm northern waters. Our horses here must freeze.

    swimming and exercising on that beach?????????
    Great views of the Whitsundays.
    I suspect that coal freighter is off to either China or India.

    1. I expect those views were once used for postcards. We don't see many postcards about these days.
