Concrete outdoors settings
at Paronella Park in Queensland.
Apart from the romance behind its creation
was one of the destinations for
Australian and American solders
on R&R during world War 2.
Perhaps made from a recycled packing case??
Geelong Botanic Gardens.
Bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.
Another bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.
Some street art from Melbourne.
Not sure it was design as a seat but I have
seen it used as such.
The most simple and easiest seat to make.
Probably need a ten-ton crane to move it though.

If ever visiting Cairns in Queensland
this pile of earth should catch your eye.
Between Geelong and my home town
on the Hamilton Highway is Mount Elephant.
Fortunately ‘they’ have stopped eating
into the side of these volcanic cones
which dot Victoria’s Western District.
Mount Shadwell, another of
Western Victoria’s piles of earth.
And finally a pile of earth from The Twelve Apostles.
Sad to think these are falling due to
the incessant pounding they receive from the sea.
My first contribution to the Pic and a Word Challenge.
The Daintree River in Far North Queensland.
It is nearly five years since we visited Cairns,
the gateway to the Daintree Rainforest.
A beautiful stretch of water with some
unique ‘no swimming’ deterrents (crocodiles)
lazing in the sun.
A few years back we went to Cairns (Queensland) for a holiday.
The Daintree River and Rain Forest was about
an hours drive where we took the obligatory
I must confess to being a little disappointed in the Daintree area.
I was expecting huge rain forest trees growing down to
the water’s edge as do the river Red Gums in Victoria.
And I certainly did not expect cleared farming land to be within sight.
Maybe we did no go into the heart of the Daintree,
however, when one is at Daintree village and
on the Daintree River….
There were, however, a few strategically placed
‘do not swim’
signs posted along the course of our cruise.
Taken near Forrest in South West Victoria’s
temperate rainforests, near the Otway Ranges,
this drive through these trees is one of my favourites.
And only about an hour or so from Geelong.
