Australia Day

The Australian bush may not be postcard perfect but I love it ... happy Australia Day.


  1. Happy Australia Day! I think the Australian bush is postcard perfect. Certainly my sort of postcard. :)

  2. It's beautiful, Joan. Happy Australia Day!

  3. Postcards are over-rated. They reflect cliches for folk who cannot think for themselves.

    I like the colours of our bush, but I especially like the smell of our bush.

    Not sure that I like Australia Day. It tends to bring out the drongo in us.

  4. Well, that depends on your point of view!! Your shot looks VERY Frederick McCubbin - and his paintings are BEYOND postcards!!

  5. Yes Red the colour here is very McCubbin.

    Julie, I have warmed to Australia Day since they run it on the fixed date, though the date can be contentious.

    As for postcards ... I wonder how many of the shots we put in our blogs would rate as postcards (hence cliche by Julie's definition).

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.
