Polygonum Billabong



So much water about and water birds abound.

  1. Is that its name: Polygonum? So off I go to look up the meaning ... "Any of numerous plants of the widely distributed genus Polygonum, characterized by stems with knotlike joints and conspicuous sheathlike stipules".

    So is this a Joan-name or an official name? I really do not understand that entire sentence that I copied from the dictionary!

    1. It is the official name and I don't remember seeing any plants of that description there.

  2. The bird life must have been amazing. And I've never seen a gum like that before.

    1. I can't tell one gum from another ... other than that how they look different. It annoys me that I can't name them.

  3. Oh that first shot is just beautiful.
    I want to be there right now - right on the banks of that billabong.
    Hey, maybe that's a Coolibah tree?

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.
