On our trip to Finch Hatton Gorge we were lucky enough to see a loaded sugar-cane train crossing the river. As we had been to the local miniature sugar factory in Sarina it was interesting to see the associated machinery cutting and transporting the cane from local farms.
A short trip into Mackay and we enjoyed a lovely day wandering through the small but interesting botanic gardens - it really is a lovely area in the North.

Not long after our return from the wilderness our lovely Auntie arrived from the UK to spend ten weeks with us. Being her first, and no doubt only, trip to Australia we do, of course, want to show her as much as we can during her visit. Luckily for us September is our local Carnival of Flowers time and the gardens all around our beautiful city are just splendidly full of colour. There are lots of private gardens open to the public following the judging of the garden competition and our public parks are just brimming with floral displays. So plenty to see locally during September and October.
Although I am only now updating our blog, we thought you might like to share in our excursions with Auntie during her visit - so -
More to come.
