Wetlands, after the inundation

A very wet day, last Saturday….flash flooding. We visited the Berrinba wetlands on Monday. The waters were up and flowing fast. Got some pics.

Sherwood Aboretum

I haven’t walked through this park, the Sherwood Aboretum, since my childhood, and found it pleasantly surprising. There’s some quite old trees, but also some recent plantings, and a boardwalk down to the river which offers beautiful views across and down Brisbane River. Large picnic areas and facilities are well used…I visited on a Sunday afternoon…and dogs were being walked. Altogether a fine atmosphere was created. There’s also some commemorative plaques recognising the Stolen Generation, amongst the trees. And I photographed the 1974 flood height…the whole area went under….I remember. When I was young we called the place “Sherwood Forest park”, but it has nothing to do with England! The photos I took, I’m showing you here; at least a selection.
