Wondai Qld

A lovely creek at Finks Crossing

We arrived at Wondai on Tuesday and stayed with our friends Rhonda & John. John is an ex tour quide and we have had a lovely few days being shown around the area with an excellent commentary of the area we couldn't have asked for a better host. We drove to Kingaroy on Wed and up into the Bunya Mountains and surrounding areas, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at a lovely little town of Maidenwell.

We also explored Wondai, Byee, Proston and shopped at the local IGA in Murgon. We drove into Wondai last night for a lovely meal at the local RSL club.

Pelicans at Belkje Petersen Dam

We visited the Bjelke Petersen Dam and the Boondooma Dam, water is down as they have had little rain in the last few years.

We are experiencing some of the storms which are effecting the Ipswich area but apart from some threatening lightning and strong winds we have not seen any rain. Our birthdays and wedding anniversary were this week and we received several calls from from family and friends. We were even serenaded by a few. We indulged in a Pavlova on my birthday which Bill surprised me by buying during a visit he made to Kingaroy. We leave today to travel towards Lowood where we are having a HF Radio Club get together and will catch up with new and old friends.

Bottle Trees are in abundance in the area

Only 36 sleeps before we go home Yeh!!!!!!!!!
