Milllmerran, Queensland

We stopped in Millmerran, Q'land for about 3 days after travelling all that way, and finally we had arrived in the State of Queensland.  Had all the washing from when we left home and it was time to put a little lighter clothing on, though not warm it was warmer than what we had been through.
Caught up on my washing, 4 loads costing just $12.00, could have done it in my own washing machine but it would have taken too long as my machine is very small and great when you wash everyday or second day.

I found the lake at the caravan park to be rather low, much lower than it was in previous years when we stayed.  The grass around the caravan site was not that green, there also were not many people in the caravan park either.  A glimpse of Millmerran in 2017 here. This link will show better the water level in the lake.

There is a bushfire near Millmerran, the evacuation centre being the Showground..


The photos are from the internet supplied by the Fire Brigade of the fire near Millmerran, Queensland.  It appears some  houses are lost.

    1. Indeed and still going, 3 fires have joined into one front - not good.

  2. Hello Margaret,
    Wonderful pictures around the water. So nice with the clouds in the sky on shot 3 and 5.
    Bad to see that bush fire, but sometimes it is good for new nature life.

    Greetings, Marco

  3. That is alarming to see low water levels in the lake, and to see the fire photos. I am praying for rain for your country to put out the fires.

  4. Fire is not a nice phenomenon but it has the ability to start again.

    1. No it's not pleasant and it just takes a spark to commence in another area.

  5. The bush fire looks devastating, hopefully the firefighters can keep it under control and exstinguish it.

  6. Heartbreaking.
    So many fires are raging at the moment, and so many remain out of control.

  11. The fires are just so sickening - nothing but fires on the TV news.
    Controlled fires bring new vegetation - uncontrolled fires bring devastation - homes, farm machinery, animals and human life etc etc.

    Some commentators obviously have had no fire experience and the impact on rural and now even outer suburban places.
