Snow

At home - from the home front it snowed on a few mountains Sunday night/morning on the Island.  The photo below is of Mt. Barrow a low mountain not that far from home, we can see it out the family room window and at the front of the house looking east. It has to be cold for snow to fall on this mountain, many years snow doesn't fall on Mt. Barrow.
It's 1,406 meters above sea level, 22 klms from Launceston. The rock is classed as Jurassic.



From Friday's post we move forward to some more scenery at Elliot Heads in Queensland.

The lookout below and what's on the Submarine Lookout, the Remembrance of those who fought in the Wars.














There is a man on that rock, fishing.


Back at the caravan park in Bundaberg the bird came to visit.

Towards Elliot Heads, Queensland

We travelled along to Elliott Heads same day as it's not far to view the scenery and see what was there.

Elliott Heads is a coastal town just 17km south east of Bundaberg with just over 1,000 people. The river there was named after the first Speaker of the Queensland Parliament, Sir Charles Ellott.

The photo of the duck was taken not too far away and the train is a coal one we encountered on the way to Bundaberg.

The photos are of the area and that house has a great view of the Coral Sea.
