Road to nowhere?
By Klae McGuinness ·  · From Pic of the Week

Where does the road go?
Does it lead you home, start a mystery journey for you, maybe it signifies a new start or is it the road that the "Talking Heads" sang about in their song "The Road to Nowhere". Published 11 Jan 2017.  Canbelego NSW 2835



Adele walking the track to the old train tunnel

Adele walking the track to the old train tunnel at Helensburgh. ... The tunnel is 624 meters in length, the lower end sealed with concrete once the railway here was abandoned in 1915. The blocking of the end of the tunnel resulted in it becoming a water reservoir used to supply Helensburgh until the connection to town water. Even today, with lots of rain, the tunnel floods and fills up with water. Gumboots are definitely required when adventuring here.

I'd seen some old pictures of this tunnel during its working life. Standing on the old platform yesterday, I looked at all the lush green foliage. Amazing how nature takes back and takes over again. ...so, last year marked the 100th year of the tunnels closure.

Carambola trees can have several crops every year

Carambola trees can have several crops every year, so we often see flowers and tiny fruit setting while we are harvesting.

Along this stream is 'Devil’s Pool" that holds fear to many in Aborigine lore. These cold, clear waters run from the mountains near Babinda. They are easily accessible, but often missed by tourists.  Published 28 Dec 2016.  Babinda QLD 4861
