A few views in my area of south eastern Australia.
We have mostly open rolling farm country , but there are small groups of mountains.
Mainly the remains of ancient volcanoes . No where near as high as the mountains overseas , although there are a few that are quite high along our Great Dividing Range which runs along the east coast.
There are some lovely ferny places not far from here and a lot of light bush land full of xanthorea or grass trees.

pic 1 .. some of the xanthorea.
pic 2...a painting I did of the river not far from here.
pic 3...some of the tree ferns about half hours drive away.
pic 4...a typical road side with the lovely old red gums.
pic 4 ...view from the back of my yard of the grassy paddocks that are used for mainly sheep and cattle.

Jean.

1. A Sunday drive on a grey day south of Brisbane.
2. A couple of kangaroos in the paddock. I actually don't see many kangaroos as we tend to have more wallabies around us (which I think are cuter than kangaroos anyway).
3. Lizards are often seen in the local nurseries.
4. A cute little wallaby.
5. An echidna. These are getting scarcer around here with the destruction of the land for development.

we do live low, close to the river but it doesnt quite get in our house when it floods.
This is a pic of our town from the sky, we live up the river inlet on the right of the pic and not on the beach.
We have 2 white kangaroos that come around our house.

Northern Rivers NSW and part of the beauty of living around here is its diversity . Within a few minutes in any direction you can find something different happening.

Hi Everyone, I have just joined this site, in the hope of identifying some of the plants I have, making friends with similar interests and swapping plants with other members. Love this thread and have added some pics of a few places I have visited recently.
Cheers C.

Pic one is a koala that joined us for breakfast on a fishing trip at Ulupna Island on the Murray River near Strathmerton Victoria.
Pic two is the campsite at Ulupna Island.
Pic three is looking from the campsite towards the Murray River at Ulupna Island
Pic four is mountain ash trees on the road to Mt Hotham Victoria
Pic five is a hut beside the road to Mt Hotham

Yesterday, my sister went to Mayfield Gardens at Oberon near Bathurst in new South Wales. Its not very old yet, but is going to be fabulous just by what they have done so far. Jaw dropping scenery helps immensely.

Check out the picture gallery! http://www.mayfieldgarden.com.au/gallery.aspx

The Hunter Valley Gardens, not too far from where I live, is an up and running proposition and is the first,(I think) such a designed and lovely garden in NSW anyway. Getting a bit too commercial, but lovely nonetheless!

Here's their Gallery: http://www.hvg.com.au/gardens/gallery

I live in (on?) the City of Lake Macquarie, 40k South of Newcastle, 150k north of Sydney, New South Wales. Lake Macquarie is a salt water lake with an inlet that is constantly clogging with sand. Now that commercial fishing has been banned in the lake, there are way more fish for the holidaying tourists and fishermen. Unfortunately the number of Bull Sharks has increased beyond all imagination. They are going to have to net the swimming areas!
1.The town of Grafton in Northern NSW in the Jacaranda Festival.
2. The view of Lake Macquarie from the terrace of Dobell House, former home of Sir William Dobell, painter.
3. Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. Painters heaven!
4. Avalon head and Avalon beach, one of the best of Sydney's northern beaches.
5. Cable beach in Broome, up near the top of Western Australia in the Kimberley area.

Enjoy!
Gabi
