A family weekend in Southern Queensland Country [video]

Jan 20, 2014 No Comments by

There is nothing quite like the Queensland countryside in summertime. Dramatic sunsets, secret waterfalls, glistening golden fields of grass that stretch almost to the horizon – country life in Queensland has a magic all of its own.

Warm days and cool nights mean the luxury of swimming holes and camp fires laced together, and there isn’t a local – nor a horse, cow, chicken or wallaby, for that matter – unwilling to stop and welcome you. The produce is fresh, sweet and plentiful, and the crisp, eucalypt-tinged air just as nourishing.

I joined one young family for a weekend adventure out of the city to let them experience the wide open spaces and ever-changing beauty of Southern Queensland Country all for themselves. See just how much they enjoyed the experience.

Special thanks to Colin & Libby at Taabinga Homestead in Kingaroy for hosting our weekend in the country.
