Those mountains are Mount Kaputar National Park.  We are on our way out there, passing by canola fields, to see what the Sawn Rocks are all about.


  1. I was just looking on Poof this week at a couple of photos of Mt Kaputar.
    It's such a lovely sight when travelling along that road.

    1. Yes it is. It's been a long time since I have travelled the Newell so it was quite forgotten to me.

  2. Sawn Rocks is such a cool rock spot, and Mt Kaputar NP stunning! I wish I was there with you :D

  3. Canola fields are (IMO) essentially boring. Nothing can compare with a field of ready to strip wheat.

    1. I like ce it. and I loves fields of wheat. But one of the crops I really enjoy is peanuts which are planted in red soil which contrasts beautifully with the green and is usually planted in contours rather than dead flat country. It's been a long time since I was last in Qld during peanut season so have no photos of it.

  4. It looks like a really beautiful place, especially with the yellow canola.

    1. I really like the yellow blue combo. It works in the same way with gold n dry summer grass against blue mountains.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."
