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.

I was just looking on Poof this week at a couple of photos of Mt Kaputar.ReplyDelete
It's such a lovely sight when travelling along that road.
Yes it is. It's been a long time since I have travelled the Newell so it was quite forgotten to me.Delete
Sawn Rocks is such a cool rock spot, and Mt Kaputar NP stunning! I wish I was there with you :DReplyDelete
Yes really cool. As today's post shows.Delete
Canola fields are (IMO) essentially boring. Nothing can compare with a field of ready to strip wheat.ReplyDelete
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.Delete
It looks like a really beautiful place, especially with the yellow canola.ReplyDelete
I really like the yellow blue combo. It works in the same way with gold n dry summer grass against blue mountains.Delete
I love it too.ReplyDelete
