Room at the Top

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #22

While we’re down on the ground perfecting our social distancing skills, there’s always room at the top of the tree for a gathering.

Even smooching is allowed!

While our travels are on hold, I’m joining in every day with Becky’s April Square Tops Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme word “top”.

Top Up

What a difference water makes! At Paddabilla Bore between Eulo and Cunnamulla, water drawn deep from the Great Artesian Basin nourishes the land.

Sadly, not fast enough for some creatures.

The dam won’t be topped up until it rains again.

Up On Top

What do you do when a Prime Mover bearing an “over size” warning is heading towards you?

Move out of the way!

When the load up top is this big, it’s best to give it a wide berth.

It’s breakfast time!

A brown honeyeater displays his determination to get to the sweetest flowers.

A juvenile spotted bower bird helps himself to a pomegranate.

And a honeybee finds these blossoms irresistible.

Top o’ the Morning #3

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #18

It’s not an Australian bush camping trip unless you’re woken at sunrise by the raucous “laughter” of the kookaburra. The largest of the kingfishers, kookaburras call out every morning to re-establish their territory. Usually one bird starts before the rest of the family group joins in, reminding nearby groups of their presence.

Top o’ the Morning #2

At the start of the day, the rising sun casts a golden glow over the bush.

It’s breakfast time, but the kangaroos stop grazing for a while to watch us watching them.

Top o’ the Morning #1

Out at Gubberamunda State Forest where the grass trees grow, the morning sun struggles to shine in an overcast sky. It’s cool now, but once the clouds burn off the temperature quickly rises.

Over the Top

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #15

After recent rain in the Cunnamulla area the Warrego River was full.

Just outside town the muddy water flowed freely over the top of the weir before heading downstream towards New South Wales.

A single pelican cruised along on top of the water, riding the rapids in search of lunch.

Top Rated

According to the tourist brochures, Deb’s Cafe is the best in Bollon. It’s also the only cafe in Bollon.

The cafe’s top rating is no surprise. You can get a tip top tasty lunch and your live bait for fishing, both at the same time!

From Top to Bottom

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #13

This old cottage in Mitchell is in need of a “Grand Designs” makeover from top to bottom, inside and out. Someone’s made a start by replacing the old stumps with termite proof steel posts, but there’s a long way to go.
