Whilst we were on holiday, we took the kids to see the mountains and rain forests of the Far North Coast of NSW. Now that we are back home in
, we took them for a day trip to the Tidbinbilla/Brindabella ranges. Canberra
These mountains were ravaged by a
bush fire fire storm 9 years ago (to the day, coincidently) and the scares on the landscape are still very obvious.
Up in the mountains there is a beautiful little waterfall called
Gibraltar falls. In the rushing water, I just caught a glimpse of a rainbow.....
There is an absolutely amazing contrast between the lush rainforests and the dry Australian bush of the National Capital,
. Canberra was a planned city and sometimes I wish they had planned it to be near the beach…or not so cold…. and sometimes not so hot! Canberra
But in it’s own way, the country side around
has it’s own beauty and charm. The sky seems to be painted with a lighter blue and the scenery is in shades of yellow, brown and dark green. It reminds me of Australian folklore, of bushrangers and brumbies. Canberra
I guess that’s why it’s known as the Bush Capital
It's Friday Fences day so I'm linking up with Life According to Jan and Jer, where you'll find lots of wonderful and creative photos...through a fence!
