First stop, Boonah, in the Scenic Rim, about an hour's drive from Brisbane and one of my favorite day trips.
|Bought a gorgeous pendant like this one at Art and Soul Gallery.|
|We stopped for lunch at the Commercial Hotel.|
|Friendly locals in the public bar.|
|Then took in the scenery at Kooroomba Winery and Lavender Farm.|
|Orange trumpet vine (Pyrostegia venusta)|
|Take me home, country road|
|Beautifully restored shops...|
|and B&Bs, in neighbouring Kalbar.|
Why do we so often wait for visitors before getting out to explore our own neck of the woods?
