Maroochy Bushland Garden is one of those delightful little gems that even the locals don’t necessarily know about. There is the bushland , and there is the more formal garden and this work tries to combine them both using a bit of camera trickery and Photoshop.

Buderim Forest Park

There are two walks into the Buderim Forest Park. The steep walk down to Serenity Falls, or the longer walk to the falls along the boardwalk. I took the steep route the first time I went there – no problems getting down to the falls, but it was a effort to get back up. Age is catching up to me and I’ll stick to the boardwalk in the future! I hope my photographic imagination captures some of the magic of this delightful area right on the edge of the town of Buderim.

Natural Arch

One of the really great things about Natural Arch in Springbrook National Park – apart from it’s beauty – is that it is a short walk from the carpark! When I first went to Natural Arch in the 1990s people could swim in the pool, but this is now either banned or not encouraged – so I have taken the liberty of floating my boat in it. As far as I know you can still walk into the cool, darkness of the cave to view the waterfall and take photographs.
