The 1st house is somewhat how many Queensland houses are built or were and a few still are.
Some are not filled in down stairs so therefore are stilt houses. Being stilt houses it lets the air flow through on the hot summer days, the veranda's to sit outside in shelter to eat on the balcony with the partitions helping to keep the sun out.
The remainder of the houses are of some around the area in Hervey Bay in Queensland, Winter 2016.
A few shops opposite the beach. There are no high rise buildings along the beach!
