Summer sunflowers in full bloom [gallery]

There’s a yellow sea not often talked about, that ebbs and flows through Southern Queensland Country towns. Fields of sunflowers as far as the eye can see bloom in full force during the hot summer months.

Take a drive on the Sunflower Route from Warwick to Allora anytime from late January through to March and you’ll see sunny vistas of these giant smiling flowers. The 50-kilometre round trip will also take you through the pretty patchwork countryside of ploughed black soil, green lucerne and grazing crops, and brick-red sorghum.
