Leaving Miles we roll on through the Darling Downs and into the South Burnett.  This is the region  of my birth and childhood and suddenly the landscape seemed too familiar to photograph.

We chose not to go to my old home town and camped for a few days at Wondai instead. They have a nice timber heritage museum.  I feel the link with my heritage, my grandfather and father cut timber to supplement farm income and granddad had a bullock team.  When I was a kid, as in much of this region timber was big in our town but slowly dwindled.


  1. It's weird to go to a landmark of your childhood as an adult tourist - but don't let that stop you from appreciating the moment!!

  2. This is great and the light is wonderful.

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.
