PhotoHunt- View

We're a little early in our PhotoHunt entry today, but it's a busy day in the football codes in Australia, and wanted to make sure we didn't miss it :)

The theme for this week is 'View'. We are lucky to be posted in North Queensland, one of the most naturally beautiful areas our mum has seen. We are only a short way from the rainforests, the outback, and the Great Barrier Reef.

Close to our home is a hill called Mount Stuart. It has lovely views from the top. There is a walk around the top called the Loop Track, and the views are gorgeous.

This is the view from the top of Mount Stuart, across Townsville city towards Castle Hill and Magnetic Island.




This is looking out to the South from Mount Stuart, towards Ross Lake.




It's not very clear in this photo, but Mum and Dad had a view towards a bush fire when they went on the Loop Track. It is at the base of the hill in the distance. You can see the smoke.

It's a very pretty part of the world, and we are happy to be living here!

Gorgeous views without a doubt. It must be great to take the Loop Track at different times of the year.
