Crown

Royal Hotel, Munduberra
I was surprised to find Munduberra claiming to be the Citrus Capital of Queensland.  I thought the nearby town of Gayndah had long received that crown.  Has anyone heard of Munduberra oranges?  I haven't, but I have certainly heard of Gayndah oranges -- marketing is more than staking a claim.

But at least their Royal Hotel is authentic.

  1. I haven't even heard of Gayndah oranges!

    1. Oh that's funny. I looked up the web and they have an orange festival and a big orange. Oranges have to be important in Gayndah.

  2. A QLD pub selling Carlton. I guess Carlton and XXXX have the same parent company anyway.

    1. Oh I saw a lot of XXXX up this way. But since I only really notice Royal Hotels can't speak for the presence of Carlton. I know that in NSW most of the Royal Hotels have Tooheys signs.

      I've got a few more Royals on the trip ... let's see what they are displaying.

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

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.

But then the grey clouds gather

Mostly there was sunshine but sometimes rain. The long drought is still too close a memory for us to not welcome rain even on holiday. We are still at Shellharbour here, you can see the steelworks at Port Kembla in the distance. Musing: From The Storm by Theodore Roethke "Along the sea-wall, a steady sloshing of the swell, The waves not yet high, but even, Coming closer and closer upon each other; A fine fume of rain driving in from the sea, Riddling the sand, like a wide spray of buckshot, The wind from the sea and the wind from the mountain contending, Flicking the foam from the whitecaps straight upward into the darkness."
