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.
