Gotta Get Away


Gotta Get Away

Every now and again you feel the need to get up and go, to re-charge the batteries and experience a change of scenery. Planning a week-end escape is almost as good as the escape itself. In South-East Queensland we are spoilt for choice. I felt like a bush change and decided on Mt Tamborine. Although only a 50 minute drive from Brisbane, I had not been there in over 15 years. So why Mt Tamborine?

  2. Can I have your life for a while…..! You go to such wonderful places and then write eloquent narrative that wishes we were with you sampling such delights. I suppose 1 hour gets us into the Dales, but the weather is just grim here. Please send warm sunshine and balmy days!
