This last trip, the kids and I drove to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, over 2000 km of driving for the return trip. On the way up we drove a very scenic route - Bucketts Way and Thunderbolts Way which are small back roads over the Great Diving Range. I had to share some photos.
Outside Walcha, I spied something lovely out of the corner of my eye. We tracked back for a closer look. I'm not sure what this grand house functions as, but it sure is beautiful.
Thunderbolts Way ends at Uralla which is a very lovely little town.
Gorgeous old buildings.
We were then on the New England Highway. We stopped at Guyra for this Lamb and Potato festival. What a good promotion for the area's farmers. Loved the roast lamb rolls.
After an overnight stay in a crappy motel in Glen Innes, we finally we made it to the border. Still lots of driving till Brisbane.
I love country roads.
