The railways

We visited the Railway Museum in Rockhampton.  The railways had a big part to play during the war.

As we travelled around I began to realise that these ornate timber railway stations are characteristic of Queensland rail, very different from the brick ones we see down south.


  1. More lovely memories but I haven't seen this statin. I like the way many of them have been restored and turned into museums.

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.
