Nepalese Pagoda Revisited

Another photo on the Nepalese Pagoda at Southbank. This was taken a couple of weeks ago and the trees were much fuller this time.

See the original post here.
The Nepalese Pagoda is one of South Bank’s most treasured attractions. Originally brought to Brisbane as the Kingdom of Nepal’s contribution to World Expo 88, the three-story high Pagoda is now located in the heart of the Parklands. It features 80 tonnes of hand-carved Nepalese timber and took more than 160 Nepalese families two years to build. It is also one of only three Nepalese peace pagodas in the world to be located outside of Nepal. [Source]

City Views

Out and about at Kangaroo Point Cliffs once again. Brisbane has such breathtaking city views and the stars were out to play. Perfect!

A Day in the Park

I took this photo back in September when we went to Toowoomba for the weekend. Toowoomba is a regional city about an hour and a half drive west of Brisbane with a population of approx 160,000. It is nicknamed “The Garden City” and boasts about 150 public parks. This is an example of one of them. Toowoomba holds a “Carnival of Flowers” every September and the city is dressed in glory with flowers everywhere, and I mean everywhere! It’s a beautiful city and one of my favourite places to be in Spring. More photos to come soon 🙂

Adorable Chicks

I stumbled across this adorable purple swamphen chick. His mother deserted him at my approach and he was terrified of me and my camera. He hopped from lily to lily and tried to hide by the edge of the pond. I eventually got him and after I left his mother returned to him and his sibling. Sorry little chicky but you were too adorable to resist 🙂
