Canberra is famous for its extensive plantings of exotic trees which means it puts on a terrific Autumn colour display but by this time of year are bare and wintery.  It's a chilly place with the mountains often being snow capped in Winter.


  1. I like the beauty of these bare trees, it's like seeing impossibly elegant sculptures.

  2. They don't look so exotic to my eyes. Yes, yes, I know you mean non-native ...

    HOwever, the reason Canberra went for colour at this level, is because it is essentially colourless at every other level.

  3. Paula, intricate sculptures too.

    Julie, you are sooo right. The planned colour in the buildings is so boring, unlike the wonderful mish mash of great cities.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
